Russia Issues International Arrest Warrant for Convicted Felon George Soros

DAVOS/SWITZERLAND, 27JAN10 - George Soros, Cha...
BY VOLUBRJOTR via 2012 Indy Info
Soros’ use of these cross-collateralized compounded derivatives utilizing Luxembourg banks violates the terms of the Basil II European Union banking agreement.
The thing that should give pause to the Heads of State Western is like Putin did in freeing Russia from those who wanted to bring the total economic and social collapse and beat up in jail all those who have tried.
Are they influencing Lubawitschern Putin? The fact is that Putin is loyal to Russia and its people, and never allow anyone, even when he is in command in that nation, to sell out his country and into the clutches of the NWO lasciarela. For this he ordered to issue an international arrest warrant against George Soros, who has been caught red-handed as he prepared to send financial aid to what is called opposition in Russia, which recently made the streets in dozens of thousands of people telling lies and misinformation-cheating during the elections.
Now Mr. Soros has little room to continue his dirty games with the speculation that has devastated the entire global financial system, in collaboration Rothschild / Rockefeller and other jackals.

Putin’s speech, which was officially issued by the Russian authorities.
Today it is made public the following statement by the Russian Federation and its Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, has been asked for an arrest warrant against the International Terrorist Finance, the Hungarian currency-Mogul George Soros, the Russian secret serviceshave found that Soros was using foreign currency derivatives with other Danes to start an attack against the Russian Currency Shares in the market.
  1. Political Vel Craft In Russia’s Pravda: Obama The Chicken Is Being Plucked!
It should be noted that Soros was using these derivatives with the help of Luxembourg banks, which is forbidden after the contract was made by the EU called Basel II.
Both the IMF (International Monetary Fund) and European Union have issued an Interpol “Red Notice” which is not only against the immediate arrest of Soros, but also against the Sharks on Finance, Bush, Clinton, criminal organization, Marc Rich and his firm, which is located in Switzerland, the Commodities Broker-Richfield, which is why the Russian Premier Putin has recently met the Chef of the Federal Reserve Bernanke Bermard making clear that the Russian Federation will not accept that such use is made of people like Soros and Rich to commit criminal acts of the derivatives market and Finance, which led to social destabilization across the globe.

Putin will be done and start the hunt for these criminals and their accomplices Bankers Rothschild, Rockefeller.
Turkey does not go down to the will of the West.
The turkey is not associated with the embargo that the U.S. / Israel and the EU have decided to take against Iran, has stated that the turkish government spokesman, adding that since the decision when the embargo will not be officially given by ‘ UN, Turkey will continue to import oil from Iran, since both states have agreed in the contracts they have in common, the spokesman continued his speech, stating that the EU states that have passed the Embargo you are penalized for their own to please the U.S. government without thinking that the reactions of citizens would be contrary to their decisions, this leads to moodiness and social problems (they’re seeing), Iran itself has decided to cut oil supplies to the EU immediately even if they decided that the embargo should be implemented within 6 months from the declaration.

Turkey itself has commercial contracts with Iran, which also consist of providing material for the maintenance of its nuclear plants that are used for electricity and how it is spread by the Western media who write under pressure governments US / Israeli that control them 100%, that Iran is almost ready to build its atomic and therefore always to serve their master without thinking such catastrophic consequences may ensue, to consider that the Obama administration had agreed that the Turkey remained on good terms with Iran, since when “probably” a threat by the Israeli government to influence the upcoming elections for the presidency, has persuaded him to change course.
The Israeli government made the request of the Greek government of Israeli troops to be stationed with the adjacent military airport on the island of Cyprus, makes it clear that diplomacy has no place in the ranks of the Israeli government, for them, there is only violence under the guise of a threat does not exist and with which they would like to take the absolute domination in the Middle East.
.P.S. At this hour the government of Greece is ready to leave the European Union and try to save their nation similar to that which took place in Iceland.
P.P.P.S. This is a direct warning to the privately owned, criminal Federal Reserve:
Any attempt to ‘bail out’ Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan and their bogus credit claims against the nation of Greece using U.S. Taxpayers money will lead to a major response by the U.S. Military.
In closing, a direct message to alleged pResident Barack Hussein Obama-Soetoro:
When you signed the TREASONOUS, UN-Constitutional National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which permanently shredded the U.S. Constitution, you declared war on theAmerican People and forfeited any chance of an alleged re-election.

SARAH PALIN CALLS ON OBAMA TO STOP CHRISTIAN BASHING

oh-dear-piers
by: Kevin Scholla 

Just like the state it calls home, Fort Hood is big. The Killeen, Texas post is the largest active duty armored post in the U.S. Due to the quality of life offered to soldiers and their families, Fort Hood is nicknamed The Great Place. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin discovered the people based at Fort Hood are worthy of the tag "great" as well.

In a Facebook post, Palin wrote:

"I had the honor of visiting Fort Hood in 2009 during the "Going Rogue" book tour and meeting some of the great men and women in uniform who serve our country there."

She went on to feature an article from Todd Starnes about a shocking pre-deployment briefing at Fort Hood. During that briefing, troops were told that evangelical Christians and the Tea Party were a threat to the nation.

Palin expressed outrage. "Not only is such a thing unfathomable, but as shocking is that the Commander in Chief has not used his authority to stop this nonsense. I think the troops at Fort Hood who lived through a terrible act of terrorism a few years ago know better than most that Christians aren't the ones using religion as an excuse to attack our nation."

On November 5th, 2009, former Army Major Nidal Hasan went on a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, killing thirteen people and wounding dozens more. One of the individuals killed was a pregnant mother who's unborn baby also died.

The Muslim terrorist said he was “defending his religion.”

In the article highlighted by Palin, Starnes writes about a soldier who attended a briefing earlier this month and said the counter-intelligence agent in charge of the meeting talked at length about how evangelical Christians and groups like the American Family Association were “tearing the country apart”. The soldier, who fears repercussions, is not identified.

Another soldier also spoke to Starnes and said while Christians were targeted at the briefing, next to nothing was mentioned about Islamic extremists. The soldier also said those in the pro-life movement were painted as radicals.

Palin is calling on President Obama to put a stop to such discriminatory speak toward Christians in our military. The White House has yet to respond.

U.S. must embrace Holy See: Column


by: Francis Rooney 

The past few years have seen cordial but cooling relations between the United States and the Vatican. Since President Obama took office, he has visited the Vatican just once, and the administration has demonstrated little more than a perfunctory interest in the Holy See's diplomatic role in the world. This is a lost opportunity at a critical time for America. U.S. foreign policy has much to gain from its relationship with the Holy See, the governing body of the Catholic Church. No institution on earth has both the international stature and the global reach of the Holy See — the "soft power" of moral influence and authority to promote religious freedom, human liberties, and related values that Americans and our allies uphold worldwide.

President Reagan established full diplomatic relations with the Holy See in 1984 because, among other reasons, he realized that he could have no better partner than Pope John Paul II in the fight against communism -- and he was right. The administration of George W. Bush continued to expand these relations, even in difficult times while engaged in a conflict in Iraq of which the Holy See had strongly and vocally disapproved. Before President Obama's recent appointment of Ken Hackett as the next U.S. ambassador to the Holy See, there was growing speculation that the administration was considering completely eliminating the diplomatic mission, or reducing it to an appendage of the Embassy in Rome. While the Obama administration has been in conflict with the Catholic Church on a range of issues from abortion to contraception, it is clearly in America's national interests to strengthen diplomatic ties with the Holy See to advance our interests around the world.

The United States and the Holy See remain two of the most significant institutions in world history, one a beacon of democracy and progress, the other a sanctum of faith and allegiance to timeless principles. Despite these differences between the first modern democracy and the longest surviving Western monarchy, both were founded on the idea that "human persons" possess inalienable natural rights granted by God. This had been a revolutionary concept when the Catholic Church embraced it 2,000 years ago, and was equally revolutionary when the Declaration of Independence stated it 1,800 years later.
The Church is one of the leading advocates and providers for the poor in the world, fights against the scourge of human trafficking, and advances the cause of human dignity and rights more than any other organization in the world. The Holy See also plays a significant role in pursuing diplomatic solutions to international predicaments. In 2007, for example, the Holy See helped secure the release of several British sailors who had been picked up by the Iranian navy. Its long-standing bilateral relations with Iran and the lack of such relations by the British and other western governments created an opportunity for successful intervention.

And more recently, the Holy See issued its diplomatic note concerning the civil war in Syria, calling for a "concept of citizenship" in which everyone is a citizen with equal dignity. It is urging the commissions which are working on a possible future constitution and laws to ensure that Christians and representatives of all other minorities be involved. This immediately helped place a spotlight on the plight of Christians and the ongoing exodus of all non-Muslims from most Middle East countries for the last 30 years. The power and influence of the Holy See is often underestimated. A benevolent monarchy tucked into a corner of a modern democracy, the Holy See is at once a universally recognized sovereign representing more than a billion people (one-seventh of the world's population) -- and the civil government of the smallest nation-state on earth. It has no military and only a negligible economy, but it has greater reach and influence than most nations. It's not simply the number or variety of people that the Holy See represents that gives it relevance; it's also the moral influence of the Church, which is still considerable despite secularization and scandals.

The Holy See advocates powerfully for morality in the lives of both Catholics and non-Catholics, and in both individuals and nations. One may disagree with some of the Church's positions and yet still recognize the value -- the real and practical value -- of its insistence that "right" should precede "might" in world affairs. At its core, the Catholic Church is a powerful and unique source of non-coercive "soft power" on the world stage -- it moves people to do the right thing by appealing to ideals and shared values, rather than to fear and brute force. America's foreign policy is much more likely to succeed with the support of the Holy See.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani recently gave a nod to this soft power in his Washington Post op-ed when he decried the "framework that has emphasized hard power and the use of brute force." One can speculate on the motivations and intentions of such an unlikely source, but at least there is an admission of the importance of diplomatic alternatives which are based on persuasive fundamental principles.
No two sovereigns are more naturally aligned than the United States and the Holy See in the pursuit of diplomacy founded on the core moral principles of the inalienable rights of man, his essential God-granted human dignity, and the right of all to religious freedom. This is rightly called the "first freedom" because our other freedoms seldom flourish in its absence.

Francis Rooney served as U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See under George W. Bush from 2005 to 2008, and is author of the new book, The Global Vatican.

Exclusive: Feds confiscate investigative reporter’s confidential files during raid


by: Alex Pappas 

A veteran Washington D.C. investigative journalist says the Department of Homeland Security confiscated a stack of her confidential files during a raid of her home in August — leading her to fear that a number of her sources inside the federal government have now been exposed.
In an interview with The Daily Caller, journalist Audrey Hudson revealed that the Department of Homeland Security and Maryland State Police were involved in a predawn raid of her Shady Side, Md. home on Aug. 6. Hudson is a former Washington Times reporter and current freelance reporter.
A search warrant obtained by TheDC indicates that the August raid allowed law enforcement to search for firearms inside her home.

The document notes that her husband, Paul Flanagan, was found guilty in 1986 to resisting arrest in Prince George’s County. The warrant called for police to search the residence they share and seize all weapons and ammunition because he is prohibited under the law from possessing firearms.
But without Hudson’s knowledge, the agents also confiscated a batch of documents that contained information about sources inside the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration, she said.
Outraged over the seizure, Hudson is now speaking out. She said no subpoena for the notes was presented during the raid and argues the confiscation was outside of the search warrant’s parameter.
“They took my notes without my knowledge and without legal authority to do so,” Hudson said this week. “The search warrant they presented said nothing about walking out of here with a single sheet of paper.”
She provided TheDC with a photo showing the stack of file folders in a bag marked “evidence/property.”

On Thursday, a spokesman for the Maryland State Police declined to address any specifics about the search.
“Due to the ongoing criminal investigation and the potential for pending criminal charges at the state and/or federal level, the Maryland State Police will not discuss specific information about this investigation at this time,” spokesman Greg Shipley said in a statement to TheDC.
At about 4:30 a.m. on Aug. 6, Hudson said officers dressed in full body armor presented a search warrant to enter the home she shares on the bay with her husband. She estimates that at least seven officers took part in the raid.
After the search began, Hudson said she was asked by an investigator with the Coast Guard Investigative Service if she was the same Audrey Hudson who had written a series of critical stories about air marshals for The Washington Times over the last decade. The Coast Guard operates under the Department of Homeland Security.

The Nazi Euthanasia Program: Forerunner of Obamacare~Ezekiel Emanuel,MD



 dr ezekiel j emanuel special advisor for health care at the office of ...
 [Dr.Ezekiel J. Emanuel]


[Trial at Nuremberg..Hitlers personal SS Md.Karl Brandt]
Excerpts:

Ezekiel J. Emanuel is a Senior Fellow at American Progress and the vice provost for global initiatives, the Diane S. Levy and Robert M. Levy University Professor, and chair of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania. He is also an op-ed contributor to The New York Times
Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, special advisor for healthcare at the Office of Management and Budget, the architect of Obamacare and the brother of Former WhiteHouse advisor to Obama and now Chicago Mayor 'Dead Fish' Emanuel .
Noteworthy  Dr. Emanuel served on President Bill Clinton’s Health Care Task Force...hello HillaryCare !

Dr.Ezekiel Emanuel having Jewish roots akin to non other than George Soros who brags about his collaboration with the Nazis during WWII...collecting their[Jews] possessions prior to their untimely demise in Hitlers Extermination Camps...making himself quite wealthy in the process!

Now you are probably saying how does this apply to Nazi Germany's Health Care Program of extermination?
Let me explain by taking a walk back into World History 101 WWII era...:
At his trial in front of the American National Military Tribunal in 1947, and later a leading euthanasia operative, testified that sometime in 1935 Hitler had informed Reich Health Leader Gerhard Wagner of his intention to implement euthanasia of the mentally disabled once war had begun. According to Brandt, Hitler believed the opposition to euthanasia from church circles would be less pronounced during war than in peacetime.   Anyone notice Barack Obama's attack on Christianity, Especially in the Military?

- The Nuremberg Precedent -

In the Medical Case conducted October 1946 to August 1947 as part of the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials, the United States charged Nazi officials and doctors with mass killing of patients in the euthanasia ("mercy death") program. Among the defendants, Hitler's personal physician Karl Brandt created the organization for killing crippled children, and as National Health Commissioner ordered the murder of mental patients throughout the country. Viktor Brack, part of Hitler's Personal Chancellery, carried out the Hitler-Brandt "Aktion T-4" euthanasia program that trained the doctors in genocide; then he assigned Tiergarten-4 euthanasia personnel to work on the gas chambers for the extermination of Jews. Brandt and Brack were convicted of war crimes and crimes against humanity and executed on June 2, 1948.
The U.S. National Military Tribunal identified as a prime motive of the euthanasia program, "to eliminate 'useless eaters' from the scene, in order to conserve food, hospital facilities, doctors and nurses for the more important use of the German armed forces."
That euthanasia program, and the rise to power of the Nazi regime that perpetrated it, had been sold to a population frantic from economic collapse and predisposed from years of propaganda by the eugenics/euthanasia movement to consider some lives unworthy to be lived.
]excerpts:http://larouchepac.com/node/10654]

Compare to today and Dr. 'Death' Emanuel's same philosophy and intentions:
"The dean of health-care economists, Victor Fuchs of Stanford, has long maintained that we will get health-care reform only when there is a war, a depression or some other major civil unrest. It's beginning to look like we might just have all three...."
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, "The Financial Crisis and Health Care," the Chicago Tribune, Oct. 12, 2008
When Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel wrote those words, he was chair of the Department of Bioethics (euthanasia education) at the United States Institutes of Health. Today he is President Obama's leading representative on a Federal "death council" drawing up a list of medical procedures to be used to deny care to elderly, chronically ill, and poor people, whose lives are considered of less value. Ezekiel's brother, Obama's Former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, rammed this Nazi-revival policy through Congress with the help of his stooges Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid!

Sarah Palin called it right, " if you’re old, sick or disabled — or have a friend or loved one who is — you should be very wary of Democratic healthcare plans. And, too, you should keep an eye on “the Orwellian thinking of the president’s health care advisor, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of the White House chief of staff.” This is, after all, one of the two advisors to President Obama dubbed “deadly doctors” by the New York Post, a man also known as “Doctor Death,” who, as conservative blogger Gateway Pundit explained, “supports euthanasia … [and] believe[s] medical care should be reserved for non-disabled ‘participating’ members of society.”

I will take it a step further and call it like I see it...the Obama administration with the help of "Dr.Death" smacks of The Pink Swastika ...Hitlers SS Brown Shirt SS Party of WWII...you be the judge the facts are here read and comprehend then decide who is correct and who is wrong!

Consummate Newsman Piers Morgan Falls For Palin Parody

Photo credit: thisiscow (Creative Commons)
oped: Hey Piers quick call your PETA buddies...Sarah is Pardoning Turkeys for Thanksgiving! Run with this you poor excuse for a commentator...also you definetly lack a sense of humor...whatsamatter yo Momma drop ya on your head as a baby?

Do the Turkey trot on Piers head Sarah:)


via:BreakingNews
It is not difficult to find a leftist media figure willing to risk whatever credibility he or she might have to insult former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. The Tea Party favorite has become a lightning rod for liberal caterwauling since she burst onto the national scene as John McCain’s running mate in 2008.
Though much of the criticism is rooted in outrageous exaggerations of Palin’s actual words or deeds, one news personality proved his dedication to fact-checking by perpetuating an entirely fictional news story published by a humor website.
Linking to a post on the satire site The Daily Currant, CNN’s Piers Morgan presented the article as fact to his followers on Twitter. 

“Sarah Palin Claims Jesus Celebrated Easter,” the fake article’s headline states. In his apparent rush to disparage the conservative stalwart, he posted the link along with his own commentary: “And she’s back!”
Along with other patently absurd headlines published the same day, including “Nancy Grace Arrested For Murder,” it would have taken virtually no effort to determine the entire article was fabricated. The headline confirmed Morgan’s opinion of Palin as a rube, however, and it seems he felt justified in running with the narrative.
Some of his followers, of course, are familiar with the site and quickly informed Morgan of his error.
“You do realize this is a satire website, right?” one tweet asked.
In response, Morgan wrote, “I do, yes…relax.”

Though his follow-up comment hints at indignation that anyone would suggest he made a mistake, there is absolutely nothing about his original post to indicate that he was in on the joke.
The self-righteous host, who openly mocks traditional Americans as part of his network shtick, proved once again that his primary motive is to demonize the right at any cost.
Considering his hostility toward the principles on which this nation was founded, one wonders why Morgan is so intent on remaining in the U.S. when his native land is only a plane ride away.

The Human Condition, A Sinister Deception, And The Constitution

Photo credit: jackiembarr (Creative Commons)
by  
“What is the history of the world but the history of human guilt? And do not children from the first dawn of reason show that they are wise to do evil; but to do good they have no knowledge!”- Dr. John Witherspoon, Founding Father
The founding fathers were deeply familiar with the cruel tyranny and oppression readily applied on account of mankind’s sinful and depraved human condition. The vision for America was a free society with strong representation.
“But the great security against a gradual concentration of the several powers in the same department, consists in giving to those who administer each department the necessary constitutional means and personal motives to resist encroachments of the others.”- Federalist 51 (of the Federalist Papers, which explained the vital necessity of checks and balances among the different branches of government as a safeguard against the tyrannical nature reflected by those to whom complete control and authority is bestowed.)

“The very definition of tyranny is when all powers are gathered under one place.“- James Madison, 4th President of the United States and “Father of the Constitution”
“The question is, not what rights naturally belong to man, but how they may be most equally and effectually guarded in society.” - Roger Sherman, prominent founding father who signed and drafted the Declaration of Independence and was also a vocal advocate, supporter, and signer of The Constitution.
“The essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution…that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf.
…the civil rights movement became so court-focused…there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. “- Barack Hussein Obama

And what will the ‘hope and change’ espoused by our tyranny-embracing Radical-In-Chief ultimately look like?
Karl Marx, the architect and visionary behind ‘The Communist Manifesto,’ clearly lays it out -
1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
5. Centralization of credit in the banks of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.
6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
8. Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries, the gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.
10. Free education for all children in public schools. [Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form.] Combination of education with industrial production, etc.

Lies + Propaganda + Low Voter IQ + Media Deception + Amnesty + Atheism + Dependency = A Fundamentally Transformed America Void of Freedom, Liberty, and Prosperity.
Obamas America in 2016 will represent the final end for the Constitution, the Middle Class, and America as we know it!
The 2014 elections are our last chance to educate and expose the Alinsky tactics that have thus far been proven to be so successful in seducing the ignorant, emboldening the oppressor, and frustrating the patriot.
Get off the defensive and play the game – it can cut both ways! You can be honest AND effectively aggressive. It’s all a sinister game…….. shameless political propaganda.
Amnesty (and personal identifications – very sick agenda we’re talking here) is the final act. We must develop a counter-attack, and we better get a head start!
Call out the ‘rules for radicals’ tactics for exactly what they are!!!
These people don’t want to debate, so don’t even waste your breath; just expose the tactics of a complicit segment of the population whose totally depraved condition and/or lawless quest for power has been fully realized. They don’t care about telling the truth. It’s all about demonization.

‘Tea Party is racist.” “‘Ted Cruz is a terrorist” “‘They’re holding the country hostage….. Blah, Blah, Blah!”
Just call it what it is. Here’s an example,
Alinsky Radical Rule #13: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.
When the deceptive tactic is applied or merely blindly endorsed, just call ‘em out! There’s plenty to choose from,
Alinsky Radical Rule #4: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.
And if I’m somehow wrong about their agenda ?
Well, just give me my Bible (KJV preferably) and my tin foil hat, and I’ll be on my way.

Conservatives: Doing The Work The Establishment GOP Just Won’t Do



by  
Defunding Obamacare, continuing resolutions, the government shutdown, and the incompetence circus of the Obamacare launch.  The Fall roller-coaster on the Hill has been something to watch, and also very instructive.  We have learned just how spineless John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Eric Cantor, and the other Senate Republicans really are.  We have learned that they will studiously ignore 70% of the American people who have been communicating their opposition to Obamacare through every means at their disposal.  We have seen that they care only for their own power and money, and nothing for the constituents they represent.  We have seen just how vicious they can become when the Establishment status quo is reminded that they do not rule the citizens; the sovereign American citizen grants them representative duties.  And we take them away, too.
Establishment Republicans can’t stand what Senator Ted Cruz did when he stood on the Senate floor and vigorously articulated the problems with Obamacare because it contrasted their own greed and cowardice so obviously. From its unconstitutionality to the unfairness of exemptions and subsidies to its negative impact on the economy and healthcare (and everyday Americans), Cruz made the conservative argument the whole Republican party should have been making.  Imagine if the rest of his party had done the same!  Imagine if they had spent as much time and energy supporting the man doing the right thing as they did attacking, undermining, and opposing him.  Imagine too, if they had spent as much time and energy working to persuade Democrats to vote with them to defund what Max Baucus (D-MT), the author, called the law: “a train wreck.”  Making the conservative case, it would hardly matter that the media is the Left’s propaganda machine.  They wouldn’t be able to contain it.  Cruz took the conservative message to the people, and many heard him. It was powerful, and the gutless Republicans hate that.

While trashing the Tea Party (everyday conservative-leaning Americans), the GOP amoebas keep telling that same group to deliver them the majority, and then they will fight to stop Obamacare.  We all know that now that it’s in, it will be all but impossible to stop it.  The near-impossible is hardly the specialty of today’s GOP.  And what will they do when the inevitable argument comes that, yes, the whole thing is a catastrophe – and that the solution is a single-payer system?  Will they fight to open us to a free market solution instead?  No.  They don’t want to stop Obamacare.  They want to control it.  Obamacare is a cancer that needs to be cut out before it can spread, and the House did its Constitutional duty by using the power of the purse to deny funding.  The rest just showed us their utter cowardice and indifference to the will of the people and their own oath of office.  They wrapped themselves with blame for the shutdown long before it happened in order to point the finger at the real conservatives in the party.  But the real conservatives are not to blame for the shutdown any more than they’re responsible for Obamacare itself.  They are the ones doing the right thing, and the ones doing the wrong thing despise it.

Whatever the Boehners, McConnells, McCains, and Jeb Bushes are saying, you can bet that doing the opposite will put the country on the right track.  Jeb says we need to step back and cool it, so what we really need to do is bring the heat vigorously and constantly.  Remember that when they are telling you to cool it, they are saying: cool the fight for liberty in the face of tyranny.  Cool your jets on the fight against Obamacare, the newest form of slavery.  HELL NO WE WON’T.
If you are a conservative and you’re not being attacked by liberals and squishy Republicans, you’re doing it wrong.  Winston Churchill was called a warmonger, among many other slurs, for opposing Hitler, while Neville Chamberlain was given hero’s praise for appeasing him.  Who would you rather have been?   Who will you be today?  So keep doing the work Establishment Republicans won’t do.  Keep bringing the heat against them.  Raise your voice.  Write your ink dry.  Call and email your reps and bug the hell out of them.  They are accountable to YOU.  And support people like Senators Cruz, Lee, and Rand Paul who are actually upholding their oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.  They’re leaving it all on the field to preserve liberty for all of us.  Thank them.

What We Should Ask Our 144 Soldiers Of Liberty To Do Now


by  
When you get knocked down, you have two choices: see it as an excuse to feel sorry for yourself, or see it as a reason to get up and fight. The only way we can survive is to stand and fight. The capitulation vote told us that we may have 144 actual conservatives we can call our Soldiers of Liberty (SoL). They were the House members who voted “No” on the cave. We can argue over the purity of their motives later; but for now, we have to consider them SoLs. Now, we have to clearly spell out what we want from these Soldiers of Liberty.
Here are just a few suggestions.
We need each to join us by saying and adhering to the words of Edward Evert Hale: “I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do.”

Each SoL should hold town hall meetings to teach and explain conservatism and why what is happening is unconstitutional. Each should take a turn at using the one minute speech system on C-SPAN to do this as well. During each speech, the phrase “Where are the jobs, Mister President?” must be said; and once a week, the U6 numbers should be explained.
The RNC must fund media buys to advertise these one minute talks, and the ” teaching conservatism” local meetings and social media has to be used to spread this word. People don’t trust the media (not even Fox); so saying they can get the unfiltered truth at C-SPAN can be very effective.  Using tearjerker stories to show how bad it is, at every opportunity, our Sols must remind Americans that Democrats now own Obamacare.
In the first weeks of this plan, SoLs should read off a list of Obama’s vicious stunts during his shutdown

Once a week, one of our Sols must introduce one bill that would repeal the medical device tax and another separate bill to force Congress and Obama to enroll in Obamacare. These are the soft spots in the liberal’s position. We win them, and we can start to demand that Sebelius gets fired. A SoL should sue Sebelius to force compliance of the Income Verification for Obamacare concession we won.
Since John Boehner illegally bargained away the House’s Constitutionally mandated oversight of federal spending, he must be sued; and the Supreme Court must be forced to rule on this outrage.
We must ask Ted Cruz to sacrifice any future White House plans. If he does, it stops the attacks and accusations that he is just trying to build a base for a run in 2016.

Palin Fires at Fox News: ‘Keep It Truly Fair & Balanced,’ Name Cruz Critics

 
Oped: Yeah Chris Put on your big boy pants and walk like a man! I'm with Sarah..I have little tolerance for week-kneed Dudes!




Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace made the rather odd admission Sunday morning that GOP leaders had contacted him with opposition research on Ted Cruz (R-TX) ahead of the Senator’s appearance on the show, driving home just how angry Republicans were over Cruz’s defunding-Obamacare antics.
Cruz now has one prominent GOP figure in his corner: Sarah Palin, who tweeted:

Palin is no bigger fan of anonymous sources than Cruz is—read all about it here!—and praised Cruz both in an op-ed for Breitbart and an appearance of her own on Fox News Sunday afternoon.
“Someday I’m going to tell America what I truly think about GOP elephants that would actually turn on a Senator who is fulfilling his campaign promises,” Palin said on Fox. She noted her father was a teacher and told him on air, “You are a teacher, and you’d never told me elephants were cannibalistic.”
Host Monica Crowley referenced several of GOP lawmakers who had openly criticized Cruz, including McCain’s old running mate John McCain.
“We ask as an American people collectively, that they not wave a white flag and just capitulate and give in to the liberals and to those who want this socialized program of health care coverage in our nation,” Palin responded.
Conservative radio host Mark Levin soon backed her up on Facebook:

Israel, Saudis speaking same language on Iran - Livni

Israel's Justice Minister Livni delivers a statement before her meeting with France's Foreign Minister Fabius in Jerusalem
By Jeffrey Heller
JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia and Israel are united in their opposition to Iran, but they cannot cooperate as long the Palestinian conflict continues, Israel's chief peace negotiator said on Thursday.
"When you hear the Saudis talking about what needs to be done in order to prevent a (nuclear-armed) Iran, I mean it sounds familiar," said Tzipi Livni, a former Israeli foreign minister who is leading talks with the Palestinians.
"I think that you can hear that Arabic sounds familiar to Hebrew when it comes to Iran," she said, making a rare public linkage between the goals of Israel and Saudi Arabia, which have long been enemies and have no diplomatic ties.

Both Israel and Saudi Arabia, a Sunni Muslim regional rival of Shi'ite Iran, fear that Tehran is developing atomic weapons and looking to change the balance of power in the Middle East. Iran says its nuclear activities are entirely peaceful.
Saudi Arabia has grown increasingly frustrated with perceived U.S. weakness in confronting Syria's civil war and with Washington's recent diplomatic engagement with Tehran - concerns Israel shares.
Three years ago, diplomatic cables published by WikiLeaks said that Saudi King Abdullah had frequently urged the United States to attack Iran to put an end to its nuclear program. Israel has also hinted at military action, saying it was prepared to stand alone to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, addressing parliament last week, hailed the rare commonality of Israeli-Arab interests as something that could help advance decades-old peace negotiations with the Palestinians.
Livni, however, suggested that was unrealistic, telling a conference organized by the Jerusalem Post that Arab states first wanted to see progress in Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking before contemplating any change of policy toward Israel.

"In order to prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapon, we need to cooperate with those (who) understand that Iran is a threat to them as well," she said, speaking in English.
"But unfortunately, the open conflict with the Palestinians makes it impossible or very difficult for them to act with Israel."
Last week, Saudi Arabia cited international failure to grant Palestinians a state as one of the reasons it had renounced a coveted seat on the United Nations Security Council.
"It is now very clear that the interests of the State of Israel (and) the moderates or the pragmatic in the region are the same," Livni said. "So we need on one hand to continue putting pressure on Iran ... and simultaneously to move forward in the peace process."
Both issues were on the agenda of a lengthy meeting between Netanyahu and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday in Rome that exposed differences over the Iranian issue.
Israel has repeatedly called for the effective dismantling of Iran's nuclear program, while the United States has suggested better safeguards are needed to ensure it is peaceful.

CORE ISSUES
The Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, revived in July after a three-year hiatus, have shown few signs of progress.
"I cannot share with you today what we are doing exactly in the negotiations room, but the basic idea is the need to end the conflict," Livni said.
"In order to do so, we need to address all the core issues," she added, in a reference to the borders of a Palestinian state, security arrangements, the future of settlements and Jerusalem and the fate of Palestinian refugees.
Livni said both sides had decided "that nothing is agreed until everything is agreed", effectively ruling out any interim accord that many Israeli leaders are believed to favor.
In the West Bank city of Ramallah, a senior Palestinian official described the talks as very difficult.
"There is a long road ahead but we are following the instructions from President (Mahmoud) Abbas and are very keen to reach peace," the official said.

SHOCKER: Liberal Media Admits GOP Won Shutdown!!

Photo Credit: Bravo Six Niner Delta (Creative Commons)
by
The conclusion of Barack Obama’s government shutdown brought many things. Among the more subtle was a reminder to those who think FOX is “on our side.” Maybe not. Fox’s on camera snarky comments made from apparent willful ignorance of the facts, and a desire to get out of the Democrat-controlled media’s crosshairs, told us this quite clearly.
Last Friday, as Chris Wallace was plugging his show on the local Fox morning chit chat show, he cavalierly dismissed the efforts of Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and other actually principled conservatives: “The Republicans got absolutely nothing from this shutdown.”
Now no one is asking Mr. Wallace to actually do any research himself, but it would be advisable for him to either do so or have an intern help him out with things he will comment on in front of a camera. Nevertheless, it is what it is. The important thing is that Wallace and the rest of the surrender chorus obviously didn’t bother to read beyond the headlines fed to them by the Democrats.

For those who did not merely read headlines, it comes as no surprise that the AP, a loyal Democrat tool, has now whispered: “[the Republicans’ wins in this deal]may again thwart Democrats’ hopes of changing tax-and-spend policies in two-party talks beginning anew in the Capitol.”
The AP then credits the “non-existent” TEA party for prodding GOP lawmakers for budget cuts embodied in the agreement to reopen the 17% of the government, which was childishly shut down by King Barack.
The AP tells us the “absolutely nothing” deal produced by conservatives includes continuation of the “sequester” and its mandatory cuts. While that paragraph didn’t mention that the “sequester” cuts idea was a trap set by an avaricious king to “force” Republicans to beg to repeal because it cut military funding, the truth shines through for those who have actually followed this issue. The “sequester” cuts about $1 trillion by 2021 in addition to the $1.5 trillion in cuts agreed to in 2011’s debt-ceiling deal. The deal effectively lowered the baseline for budget negotiations.
Contrary to what the lazy Mr. Wallace thinks, when King Barack summed things up by saying “there are no winners here,” he was really saying that liberals lost not in the short run, but in the long run (and so did the king.)

DHS Whistleblower Censored from 60 minutes #N3


What does it say about a government that persecutes those that tell the truth? We hear so much today about "anti-government," as if that is a bad thing. I think many of us hear the phrase "anti-government" and we envision some fringe element of society lurking in the shadows.

But is "anti-government" really a proper description if those it is used against are only striving for legitimate, lawful, government? When a government acts beyond the bounds of its legal charter it ceases to be legitimate. When it acts outside the law, as we have seen recently in Fast and Furious, it is no different than any other criminal organization with one powerful exception -- it maintains the color or the illusion of legitimacy. When governments allow unlawful conduct and use the power and control of government to cover-up these unlawful acts -- is exposing that corruption anti-government?

Our next guest knows far too well what a government may be capable of. She was a Customs and Border Protection Officer who was falsely declared a "Domestic Terrorist" and subjected to retaliation of unprecedented proportions by the Department of Homeland Security for simply doing her job. Her home was raided with a Blackhawk helicopter and a 27-men Special Response Team, she was twice falsely arrested and imprisoned, but later exonerated and found factually innocent.

National Security Expert Julia Davis is a producer of an historical documentary that dared to expose the truth titled "Top Priority", in spite of the government censorship and a mainstream media blackout; this is the documentary the government does not want you to see!

Sally Kohn A Liberal Parts Ways With Fox News

 
Oped: Well I for one am glad...Sally was annoying to say the least...Sally's attire of the masculine bent and her silly snarky smiley quirks and diatribes reminded me of Sponge Bob...sorry folks but Sally never impressed me as a contributor of any discussion...she just pushed her LGBT agenda and that was awfully boring and annoying! She will fit in  well at MSNBC Obamas mouth peace for his LGBT agenda which is 80 % of his focus as POTUS..Asta la Vista baby...enjoy your new sand box! 

MSNBC wasted no time booking her Tuesday evening to discuss a commentary she had written for the FoxNews.com site, “I was an ObamaCare Guinea Pig.” The article praised the new health care insurance program for saving her family money in the coming year and drew a favorable Twitter post on Tuesday from President Obama’s account.
Ms. Kohn, 36, declined to comment. A Fox News spokeswoman called it “a gracious and amicable parting,” and said Ms. Kohn’s one-year contract with the network expired at the end of 2012. Even so, Ms. Kohn had continued to appear exclusively on the channel until Tuesday, when she dropped the words “Fox News Contributor” from the biography on her personal Web site. 

This month, Ms. Kohn gave a talk about how to bridge the country’s political divide at the Ted@NYC conference. Conference organizers described it online afterward as “fiercely personal,” sharing “what she’s learned from her three years working as a liberal lesbian pundit on conservative Fox News.”
Although Ms. Kohn was paid only for appearances on the cable network and not for writing for FoxNews.com, her commentaries have been a major draw for the Web site. Her Sept. 30 article, “Five reasons Americans already love ObamaCare — plus one reason why they’re gonna love it even more, soon” has received more than 226,000 Facebook “likes,” and has drawn nearly 1,200 comments, according to measurements on the site.
Dave Weigel, a political reporter for Slate, noted as much on Oct. 1, when he wrote on Twitter that Ms. Kohn “must be great for Fox News on social media. Constantly see her columns shared as ‘whoa, Fox News ran this????’ ” 

Rachel Sklar, a frequent news media commentator and co-founder of TheLi.st, an e-mail and Web community for women, of which Ms. Kohn is a member, said she did not know why Ms. Kohn and Fox had parted ways, but called Ms. Kohn’s departure from Fox “a surprise, because she has clearly been so well received.”
Ms. Sklar attributed Ms. Kohn’s popularity to her style: “She deals with people as people and respects their viewpoint even if she disagrees with them.”




Obama and Brennan's Fifth Column in the US..?


Not only is Barack Hussein Obama building his own personal Army within the DHS he also caters to and has a alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood and the radicals from Pakistan! His CIA director John Brennan who is a converted Muslim as well as USAG Holder protects Obama from any FBI Investigation of his connections to these radicals who have set up house in many US States.

Steve Emerson is the executive director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, one of the world's largest storehouses of archival data and intelligence on Islamic and Middle Eastern terrorist groups. Emerson and his staff have been quoted or profiled in hundreds of newspaper and television stories since 9/11 and frequently provide briefings to U.S. government and law enforcement agencies, members of Congress and congressional committees. Emerson has testified before and briefed Congress dozens of times on terrorist financing and operational networks of al-Qaida, Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and the rest of the worldwide Islamic militant spectrum.

One of the investigators who worked on a report about terror training camps operating inside the United States describes the network as no more or less than an infrastructure for attack.
With new global Islamic upheaval taking place, Christians are paying the price – often with their lives.

But because the murder and mayhem takes place in closed societies, the world remains, for the most part, clueless.

You can help shine the light in these dark places with some great new information tools you can share with your friends, neighbors and churches, says Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive office of WND, who is making these resources available in the WND Superstore.



Scattered across the United States, unknown to all but a handful of citizens, are 35 Islamic terrorist training compounds known as "Muslims of America." Under the leadership of a radical Pakistani cleric, Sheikh Mubarak Gilani, Muslims of America has thousands of devoted followers who are being groomed for "Homegrown Jihad.".
In never-before-seen video footage, the Christian Action Network exposes these dangerous terrorist compounds and reveals for the first time a secret training tape in which American Muslims are recruited to "join one of the most advanced training courses in Islamic military warfare" ... right here in America!
They are called "Soldiers of Allah" and they are trained in explosives, kidnapping, murder, firing weapons and guerilla warfare. They are told, "Act like you are a friend, then kill him just like from the book."

Jason Campbell is project manager for the Christian Action Network, which was behind the training camps investigation.

He described for WND some of his visits to the camps, which have been located in New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Texas, Oklahoma Michigan, Colorado, California and Washington.

"The one that really gets you concerned is in Georgia," he said. "You go down a road and all of a sudden it's just woods, and there are two roads that go straight down to the camp. It's dark because of the trees. And one of the roads is named Mecca and the other Medina."

Watch the trailer for "Homegrown Jihad: Terrorist Training Camps Around the U.S." and share it with your neighbors, your local police officials and your representatives in Congress.

"If there ever was an infrastructure for terrorism, this is it," he told WND.

He said the camps themselves are in remote areas with few neighbors, and mostly self-sufficient, such as having their own water supply and often food stores. They also are closed to outsiders, with the women sometimes taking off-campus jobs, but little other interaction.
"If you died there, they bury you there," he said. "There are no permits from the Department of Health…" 
The difference is that if these were Americans they would be called "anti-govt' militia" and be placed on an FBI/DHS watch list, but because they have the title "Islamic" or "Muslim" the feds won't touch them for fear of looking racist or prejudicial. "America will never be destoyed from the outside.If we falter and loose our freedoms, it will be because we destoyed ourselves." - Abraham Lincoln

Five weeks till Turkey Day...Nine weeks till Christmas...!

Thanks to turkey ranchers keeping the prices down we all will be doing the Turkey Trot...:)




Thanks to the Obama administrations week economy we all will be having a Red Neck Christmas...LOL


McCain Floats 2016 Run...Shoving off not a option!

oped: John and Chris Christie should team up and challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination...after all they are both RINOS and vote Dem anywhoo!
 


 Senator John McCain (R - AZ) told KFYI  host Barry Young  he is seriously considering running for re-election in 2016. "I'm seriously thinking about maybe giving another opportunity for you to vote for or against me in a few years from now," McCain said on KFYI-AM in Phoenix. "I'm seriously giving that a lot of thought."

Young asked again to clarify if it would be correct to say that McCain would be running for re-election and the Arizona Senator said, "that it would not be wrong."
McCain would be 80 years old in 2016 when he runs for re-election. The Arizona Republican previously claimed in a September Hill article he was probably in his last term but would decide on running again in two years and  didn't "want to be one of these old guys that should’ve shoved off.”

Obama raising money off HealthCare.gov problems


via:FoxNews
The troubled HealthCare.gov website may be having problems pulling in applicants for ObamaCare, but that's not stopping President Obama's political arm from pulling in cash off the dysfunctional site.
Through his political group Organizing for Action, Obama sent a videotaped message to supporters in an email Tuesday evening.
In the video, the president said "the website has not worked as smoothly as it was supposed to," but "we're gonna get it fixed." As he's said before, the president added: "The Affordable Care Act is much more than a website."
The email, though, also appealed for donations, saying "the other side will spend millions to maintain the status quo."
Supporters who click past Obama's video message are then taken to a donation page that says: "The other side has already spent a whopping $400 million in anti-Obamacare TV ads. We don't have to beat that, but we need to have the resources to fight back."
The group has been organizing a multitude of events and social media campaigns around the health care law's implementation. OFA said those efforts will continue, but the group isn't adjusting its strategy in response to the website's issues. 

The campaign-style effort to defend the law comes as the administration, in Washington, tries to soothe both insurance companies and Democratic allies about the site's operation.
Health insurance executives were scheduled for a meeting at the White House on Wednesday. It included Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough.
On Wednesday, the administration also sent Mike Hash, who runs the health reform office at Health and Human Services, to Capitol Hill to brief lawmakers on the law's implementation.
Only Democrats were invited to that session, prompting protest from House Speaker John Boehner, whose spokesman called it a "snub" and said the administration should brief House Republicans, too.
But a Boehner spokesman said Wednesday that HHS has since agreed to provide House Republicans with a briefing on the site. "We are working out details," the spokesman said. 

Obama has turned to longtime adviser Jeffrey Zients to provide management advice to help fix the system. Zients, a former acting director of the Office of Management and Budget and a veteran management consultant, will be on a short-term assignment at HHS before he's due to take over as director of Obama's National Economic Council next year.
Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden and top White House officials held a call with business leaders Tuesday about the health law and other issues. Business Forward, a trade group friendly to the White House, said the administration asked the group to invite leaders to hear directly from Biden.

Dancing with Mary Jane


Leon H. Wolf
 Gallup reported yesterday that for the first time, a majority of Americans favor legalizing the recreational use of Marijuana. For those who have followed the polling on this issue, this was not a surprise, as trend lines have been moving in this direction for years. What is a surprise is that the question was not particularly close, with marijuana legalization winning by an astounding 58-39 margin.
marijuanasupport
My own views on this question are less informed by the question of marijuana legalization per se, and more by the insidious side effects of the Drug War and our national drug policy. In my view, the purported need for police enforcement of drug laws has led to unnecessary militarization of local police forces, the expansion and proliferation of law enforcement intrusion into increasing spheres of our personal liberty, and contributed to the very real problem of overcriminalization. Not to mention, our borderline insane drug sentencing policy has done virtually nothing to reduce the incidence of drug use and has contributed greatly to strain on federal and state budgets.

I am not suggesting that the answer here is the wholesale legalization of drugs, or even the legalization of marijuana. But I would suggest that the time has come that we ought to be willing, as conservatives, to discuss alternatives to our current drug policies without hyperventilation or accusations of licentiousness. Infringements on our personal liberty at the hands of the police tend to be not easily regained and in recent years has been an almost entirely one-way ratchet. We ought to always be willing to re-examine overrreach on the part of government, including law enforcement, without slavish deference to the claims of those law enforcement agencies. This, too, is part of what makes us conservative.
And in my view, it is time to end the Federal criminalization of Marijuana. In terms of pure federalism, the ongoing experiments in Colorado and Washington are perfect examples of the “laboratories of democracy” the founders envisioned. If Colorado and Washington are beset by a parade of horribles as a result of their marijuana policy, their state legislatures can act to curtail the problem. If they are not, the experience of Colorado and Washington can and should provide data to other states who are contemplating possible tweaks to their own code.

Meet Matt Bevin, The Kentucky Tea Partier Trying To Unseat Mitch McConnell

Matt Bevin


Matt Bevin
There will be at least five high-profile primary battles next year in which conservatives will try to oust incumbent establishment Republican Senators.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is the number one target, and hedge fund partner Matt Bevin is the Tea Party candidate hoping to pick him off.
In a slew of post-government shutdown interviews and television appearances, McConnell has refused to mention his Republican primary challenger in next year's election by name. His "real opponent,"  he said , is Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes.
Bevin, McConnell's primary challenger from the right, isn't buying that.
In the post-government shutdown world that has divided Republicans, conservative groups like the Senate Conservatives Fund have jumped aboard Bevin's train. Conservative firebrand and former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin hinted that she might dip her toes into the Kentucky race.
Bevin thinks the divide between him and McConnell is emblematic of a larger split in the Republican Party — between the Ted Cruzes and the John McCains — that characterized the recent battles over the government shutdown and raising the debt ceiling.

"If indeed he thinks I am someone he shouldn't be concerned about, it is remarkable how much money he is spending on attacking me," Bevin told Business Insider in an interview on Tuesday. "He tells you one thing, and then he does something different, which is exactly why people are fed up with him as a politician.
"To me, though, it's a backhanded compliment. Who wants a bunch of negative ads against them? But it's indicative of the fact that I am who he greatly fears."
This is the basis of Bevin's emerging campaign against McConnell, a fifth-term U.S. senator who has been the body's minority leader since 2008.
It's a tricky, narrow line for Bevin, a partner in the Louisville-based hedge fund Waycross Partners.  At the same time he accuses McConnell of being unwilling to lead, he's blasting him for not being conservative enough.
Bevin points to a recent event in Danville, Ky., where a man who has supported McConnell throughout his tenure and held two big fundraisers for him in the last two election cycles came up to Bevin with his arms crossed.
Mitch Mcconnell
AP
"After listening to you," the man said, according to Bevin, "I want to do a fundraiser for you. I'm not going to fundraise for that man anymore. I've had enough. I'm not voting for him again."
"He's like the Naked Emperor," Bevin said. "He parades around and wants us to think he's invincible and powerful, but he's not."
Bevin has picked up on a theme of criticism that is, ironically, shared by many Democrats. On seemingly every recent dominating issue — even the early stages of the shutdown and debt-ceiling debate — the question was: Where the heck is Mitch McConnell on this?
It happened on the debate over authorizing limited military force in Syria, when McConnell didn't take a position against using force until after a diplomatic solution had been reached. And it happened early on during the first federal government shutdown in 17 years, when McConnell didn't speak at length on the Senate floor until the third day of the shutdown.
That fact made Adam Jentleson, a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, take notice:
Sen. McConnell is speaking on the floor for more than a few minutes for the first time since the gov't has been shut down. #whereshebeen
— Adam Jentleson (@AJentleson) October 3, 2013

Bevin, obviously, wants different solutions than Reid's camp. On everything from Syria to, in Bevin's words, "amnesty" and the immigration debate, to the recent fiscal battles, Bevin claims that McConnell has either been absent or too quick to give in.
There aren't a lot of senators who currently impress Bevin. He's a fan of Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah), the two conservative leaders of the movement to defund Obamacare through the continuing resolution to keep the government funded. He's also partial to Rand Paul, the Kentucky senator who, incidentally, has endorsed McConnell in his re-election race.
Where Bevin said McConnell agreed to "negotiate the surrender" with Reid and President Obama, Bevin would have toed the line with House Republicans in the recent shutdown and debt-ceiling debates.
The polls that have subsequently lambasted the GOP are not a factor for him — everyone's approval ratings went down, including Obama, he explained. Nor was the impending doom of breaching the debt ceiling — Bevin thinks that there should be a binding balanced-budget agreement between the President and Congress to even consider hiking the debt ceiling.

"What would I have done differently?" Bevin pondered. "I would have done exactly what was done by those in the House, who were representing the will of the people. ... The people do not want implementation of Obamacare. And I would have fought right alongside those who fought for the will of the people."
Bevin has a clear uphill battle in his quest to unseat McConnell next May. He raised about $220,000 in the third quarter, according to the most recent campaign filings. McConnell, on the other hand, has nearly $10 million cash on hand.
The way McConnell has spent recently, however, is proof to Bevin that McConnell is "scared." He burned about 92% of what he raised in the third quarter both boosting his own re-election campaign and attacking Bevin and Grimes.
"I'll admit something to you," Bevin said. "Three months ago, my path was very narrow.
"It's getting wider every day."
