2016 Election Richard Falknor on 15 Oct 2016

Trump Movement — 23 Reasons For Patriots Not To Vote For Barbara Comstock — Reason #1!

There are 23 days remaining before the most crucial election in our lifetime.

Virginia is a key state which Donald Trump should carry. 

He needs all the votes he can draw from northern Virginia’s populous Loudoun County.

Republican United States Representative Barbara Comstock (Virginia 10, including Loudoun County) opposes and has been opposing Mr. Trump, her Party’s nominee.

Unless Mrs. Comstock promptly comes to a better mind, Virginia patriots in District 10 — Republican, Democrat, and Independent — should not vote for her — while being sure to vote for Mr. Trump. 

By undermining her Party’s presidential candidate in a vote-rich area of Virginia, Mrs. Comstock jeopardizes the safety of our Republic as well as our own and our children’s freedom.

Consequently, today we present Reason #1 why Barbara Comstock should not continue in the Congress:

She has a Conservative Review Score of “F” — 20 %!

Click here to see her Conservative Review “Liberty Score” in comparison with those of other Virginia U. S. Representatives.

Tomorrow check this site to see Reason #2!

We shall present another reason on each day remaining in this presidential campaign.

Trump’s Churchillian Address in Florida –“Our Independence Day Is At Hand”

“This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not We The People reclaim control over our government.” — Donald Trump

If the American people can take back their government and their society on November 8, this movement’s victory — for that is what it is, a movement of which Donald Trump is the roar — will be among our nation’s finest hours.

Here are extracts from Donald Trump’s prepared remarks in Florida today.

In plain words, Trump details the evils we face and why we must overcome them. (Highlighting Forum’s throughout.)

“Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new government controlled by you, the American People.

There is nothing the political establishment will not do, and no lie they will not tell, to hold on to their prestige and power at your expense.

The Washington establishment, and the financial and media corporations that fund it, exists for only one reason: to protect and enrich itself.

The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election. As an example, just one single trade deal they’d like to pass, involves trillions of dollars controlled by many countries, corporations and lobbyists.

For those who control the levers of power in Washington, and for the global special interests they partner with, our campaign represents an existential threat.

This is not simply another 4-year election. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not We The People reclaim control over our government.

The political establishment that is trying everything to stop us, is the same group responsible for our disastrous trade deals, massive illegal immigration, and economic and foreign policies that have bled this country dry. The political establishment has brought about the destruction of our factories and our jobs, as they flee to Mexico, China and other countries throughout the world. Our just-announced jobs numbers are anemic, and our gross domestic product, or GDP is barely above one percent. Workers in the United States, were making less than they were almost 20 years ago – and yet they are working harder.

It’s a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth, and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities.

Just look at what this corrupt establishment has done to our cities like Detroit and Flint, Michigan – and rural towns in Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina and across our country. They have stripped these towns bare, and raided the wealth for themselves and taken away their jobs.”

. . . . . . . . . . .

“When I declared my candidacy, I knew what bad shape our country was in. I had seen firsthand the corruption and the sickness that has taken over our politics. I knew they would throw every lie they could at me, and my family, and my loved ones.

I knew they would stop at nothing to try to stop me.

But I take all of these slings and arrows for you. I take them for our movement, so that we can have our country back.

Our great civilization, here in America and across the civilized world, has come upon a moment of reckoning.

We’ve seen it in the United Kingdom, where they voted to liberate themselves from global government and global trade deals and global immigration deals that have destroyed their sovereignty.

But the central base of world political power is here in America, and it is our corrupt political establishment that is the greatest power behind the efforts at radical globalization and the disenfranchisement of working people.

Their financial resources are unlimited. Their political resources are unlimited. Their media resources are unlimited. And, most importantly, the depths of their immorality is unlimited.

Our political establishment has no soul.

I knew these false attacks would come. I knew this day would arrive. And I knew the American people would rise above it and vote for the future they deserve.

The only thing that can stop the Corrupt Clinton Machine is you. The only force strong enough to save this country is you. The only people brave enough to vote out this corrupt establishment is you, the American People.”

. . . . . . . . . . .

“This is a conspiracy against you, the American people.

This is our moment of reckoning as a society and as a civilization.

I didn’t need to do this. I built a great company, and I had a wonderful life. I could have enjoyed the benefits of years of successful business for myself and my family, instead of going through this absolute horror show of lies, deceptions and malicious attacks. I’m doing it because this country has given me so much, and I feel strongly it was my turn to give back.

Some people warned me this campaign would be a journey to hell. But they are wrong, it will be a journey to heaven because we will help so many people.

In my former life, I was an insider as much as anybody else – and I know what’s like to be an insider. Now I am being punished for leaving their special club and revealing to you their great scam. Because I used to be part of the club, I’m the only one who can fix it. I’m doing this for the people, and this movement is just right – and we will take back this country for you and Make America Great Again.

The corrupt establishment knows that we are an existential threat to their criminal enterprise. They know, that if we win, their power is gone and returned to you. The clouds hanging over our government can be lifted, and replaced with a bright future – but it all depends on whether we let the New York Times decide our future, or whether we let the American people decide our future.

If this Clinton Campaign of Destruction is allowed to work, then no other highly successful person – which is what our country needs – will ever again run for this office.”

. . . . . . . . . .

“But I also know, it’s not about me – it’s about all of you. It’s about all of us, together, as a country.

It’s about the Veterans who need medical care, the mothers who’ve lost children to terrorism and crime, it’s about the inner cities and the border towns who desperately need our help, it’s about the millions of jobless Americans. This election is about the people being crushed by Obamacare, and it’s about defeating ISIS and appointing Supreme Court Justices who will defend our Constitution.

This election is also about the African-American and Hispanic communities whose communities have been plunged into crime, poverty and failing schools by the policies of Hillary Clinton. They’ve robbed these citizens of their future, and I will give them their hope, jobs and opportunities back. I will deliver.

This election is about every man, woman and child in our country who deserves to live in safety, prosperity and peace.

We will rise above the lies, the smears, and the ludicrous slanders from ludicrous reporters.

We will vote for the country we want.

We will vote for the future we want.

We will vote for the politics we want.

We will vote to put this corrupt government cartel out of business. We will remove from our politics the special interests who have betrayed our workers, our borders, our freedoms, and our sovereign rights as a nation. We will end the politics of profit, we will end the rule of special interests, we will put a stop to the raiding of our country – and the disenfranchisement of our people.

Our Independence Day is at hand, and it arrives, finally, on November 8th.  Join me in taking back our country, and creating a bright and glorious new dawn for our people.”

Grave Campaign Sabotage? Trump Supporters—Pay Close Attention To Matt Cernovich and Jim Hoft Reports

Trump supporters Matt Cernovich and Jim Hoft as well as Charles C. Johnson  and Corey Stewart raise serious questions about the external and internal attacks on the Donald Trump Candidacy.

EXPOSED! GOP Sabotage of Donald Trump! – Mike Cernovich interviews Corey Stewart & Chuck C. Johnson

Mike Cernovich:”The Inside Story of How the GOP Sabotaged Trump’s Voter Registration Drive”

Jim Hoft: RUMBLINGS: Top Paul Ryan Advisor Leaked Trump Sex Talk Tape to WaPo (Updated)

We can’t let up on our work for the Trump Campaign — but we also need to halt any further GOP Establishment undermining of this grand enterprise.

Remember — they want not just to keep Donald Trump from winning — but to keep you and us and other Trump supporters from ever having any significant future voice in our country.

For we are part of an historic national effort to keep our country’s sovereignty and to preserve and protect our common freedom.

Ryan Finally Comes All The Way Out Of The Political Closet: Won’t Support GOP Presidential Candidate & Consequently The Goals Of The Trump Movement

 The Wall Street Journal’s Kristina Peterson and Siobhan Hughes report this afternoon that–

“WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) told House Republicans Monday morning that he wouldn’t defend or campaign with Donald Trump in the next month, but didn’t rescind his endorsement of the GOP presidential nominee.
Mr. Ryan told House Republicans they should make their own decision about whether to maintain their support for Mr. Trump after video from 2005 surfaced Friday in which the nominee said he had kissed and groped women without their consent. The speaker told lawmakers in a conference call on Monday that they should do whatever they deemed best in their own districts, according to people on the call.
The speaker’s announcement to his conference triggered a backlash from rank-and-file lawmakers who complained that the highest-ranking congressional Republican was undercutting the party’s presidential candidate.”
Mr. Trump also shot back on Twitter. “Paul Ryan should spend more time on balancing the budget, jobs and illegal immigration and not waste his time on fighting Republican nominee.” (Highlighting Forum’s throughout)

So why is this a surprise?

Voters nominated Donald Trump to fight the Washington, D. C. Establishment.

This means fighting not just president Obama’s regime — but also the bent GOP Congressional Leadership.

What we call The Trump American Interests First movement aims at right-sizing immigration, stopping bad trade deals to protect American jobs, filtering Jihadists from our immigration and refugee streams, and protecting our police.

George Rasley illuminates today’s players in his Trump Prevails: Fights Clinton, Media And GOP Establishment–

“The past 72 hours revealed what’s really at stake in the presidential campaign and who the contending parties really are – and they are not the Republican and Democratic candidates for President. 
On one side are Donald Trump and country class America. 
On the other side are Hillary Clinton, her crime-syndicate of power hungry political operatives, the liberal media, the DC insider establishment, the vengeful Bush family and the spineless Republican political establishment. 
And in the lead-up to and during last night’s debate Donald Trump bested them all. 
First, the Bush family and the spineless Republican establishment. 
Anyone who doesn’t believe that the revelation of the decade-old tape of locker room boy talk wasn’t personal payback by Billy Bush for the drubbing his cousin Jeb took from Trump during the primaries should buy some Enron stock. 
And all of the self-righteous establishment Republicans who immediately trashed Trump for that piece of ancient history were never Trump supporters to begin with; they had to an individual all taken post-Convention shots at Trump. 
But more importantly, they all support Hillary Clinton’s positions on amnesty for illegal aliens, more work visas for foreign workers, more spending and more debt, and continuing the endless and inconclusive wars abroad. 
Those Republicans like Senator John Thune and Kelly Ayotte who wanted Trump to quit because of the non-scandal of his vulgar talk took a straight shot to the head when Trump not only refused to quit, but the polls showed that just 12 percent of Republicans overall and just 13 percent of female Republican voters think Trump should quit because he talked naughty ten years ago. 
As for the debate itself, it revealed little policy-wise but much communication-wise; most importantly, it confirmed that Donald Trump is the candidate of the country class against the DC establishment.”  (Highlighting Forum’s throughout)

The Bipartisan Establishment Strikes Back

More dark sides of the GOP Establishment —

Breitbart’s Neil McCabe writes in his Falwell: Lewd Trump Tape Part of GOP Coup Against Donald, No ‘Coincidence’ It Came Right Before Paul Ryan Joint Appearance

“The son of the Moral Majority founder and the president of Liberty University told WABC radio host Rita Crosby shortly after Sunday’s presidential debate that Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R.-Wis.) and other Republican leaders used the recently released lewd tape of Donald J. Trump to execute a putsch against the GOP nominee for president.
‘I think this whole tape… video tape thing was planned, I think it was timed, I think it might have even been a conspiracy among establishment Republicans who have known about it for weeks and who tried to time it to do the maximum damage to Donald Trump, and I just… I just think it just backfired on them,’ said Jerry Fawell Jr., an attorney, who succeeded his father at the helm of the Lynchburg, Virginia college.”

And consider U. S. Chamber of Commerce voice and Paul Ryan-fan Representative Barbara Comstock whom the WP’s portrays In Virginia, Republicans reacting to Trump are looking ahead to 2017

As we reported yesterday, “Trump peeps are so mad at Barbara Comstock in VA 10 that they are planning to write in Melania Trump.”

       Stay tuned for breaking developments in this struggle between American-Interest-Firsters and Ruling-Class Globalists.

The October Surprise Attack On The Trump Campaign — Was It A Bipartisan Scheme?

There are many pieces to the paternity puzzle of the latest bipartisan hit on Trump.

Breitbart’s Joel Pollak describes it as a “newly-surfaced lewd chat that Donald Trump had with Billy Bush on a live mic, eleven long years ago.”  **

But one thing is certain: many of the millions of Trump supporters — Republican, Democrat, and Independent — are enraged about GOP Establishment politicians turning on their party’s presidential candidate.

One knowledgeable source about the campaign in Virginia warned just this morning

“Trump peeps are so mad at Barbara Comstock in VA 10 that they are planning to write in Melania Trump.”

Blogger Mike Cernovich posts some troubling reports–

Mike Cernovich Retweeted Deplorable Veteran “DNC and GOP ‘elite’ have one planned each week. They are timing them with the Wikileaks to change focus. That’s why one just hit.”

“Source, ‘GOP has instructed all local offices to turn away Trump supporters. Some offices have locked out Trump supporters.’ Developing…”

Breitbart’s Joel Pollak has a craftmanslike post detailing a Profile in Cowardice: Republican Establishment Flees Trump over 2005 Comments

“Sen. John McCain, whose own treatment of women was a topic of concern in the 2008 election — dating strippers, alleged affairs, rumors that he used the ‘c-word’ towards his wife — withdrew his support for Trump on Saturday. And 2012 nominee Mitt Romney, who was accused of leading a ‘war on women’ and ridiculed for his statement about ‘binders full of women,’ slammed the Republican nominee (again) for a statement made long before Romney eagerly sought his endorsement in 2012.

Other Republican leaders are demanding Trump drop out of the race. The Republican National Committee has withdrawn its mailings for Trump. Chuck Todd of NBC News reported Saturday that right now, ‘it’s every Republican for themselves.’

They are worried that Trump’s 2005 comments — made when he was a businessman, TV star, and private citizen — will be the next Todd Akin moment, when Republicans let Democrats saddle them with one odd comment about abortion in 2012. Then as now, Republicans compounded the damage by treating a media controversy as a ‘crisis.’

It is worth asking whether this panicked mob has the rudimentary courage required to stand up to the Islamic State, or Vladimir Putin, if they cannot bear the pressure of a manufactured ‘October surprise.’

If they are willing to lose the country — for that is what may be at stake — over a decade-old joke, they might deserve to lose.

And if Trump wins regardless, look out: he will have done it on his own.” (Highlighting Forum’s throughout.)

We would also suggest that the publication of this eleven-year-old tape gives the GOP Globalist anti-Trumpers “cover” for publicly opposing their party’s nominee.

An easy test to find out: ask one of them if they would favor Trump’s stepping down but only to be replaced by Senator Jeff Sessions?

As we all know, Trump-advisor Jeff Sessions is the Congressional godfather of the American Interests First movement to right-size immigration, stop bad trade deals to protect American jobs, and filter Jihadists from our immigration and refugee streams.

Into The Gaslighting Zone*? The Northern Virginia Republican Business Forum Tries To Imagine The Next GOP Congress And A President Trump Or A President Clinton

Yesterday we received by email an invitation to a money-raising event (scroll to the bottom) from the Northern Virginia Business Forum declaring–

“Two things are certain in this crazy election year:

“1.)  The Democrats hate Donald Trump so much that if he is elected, he will never be able to make changes without a Republican Congress.”

Editor: The current GOP Congressional Leaders (Speaker Paul Ryan in Mrs. Comstock’s case) dislike the Trump Movement so much that, unless replaced, they will work with Democrats to try to stop the Trump Movement’s core issues of putting America first in immigration policy, in trade, and in screening Muslims from our immigration and refugee flow.

“2.)  If Hillary Clinton is elected, a Republican Congress will be needed to block her plans for tax increases and give-aways.”

Editor: If Hillary is elected, the current GOP Congressional Leaders will continue their over-four-year nearly unblemished record of not seriously fighting a Democratic president on any major White House priority.

“That’s why Barbara Comstock’s race for Congress is so critical.  A ‘marginal’ seat like this one is in the Democrats sights.  It’s why they have dumped millions into the race to replace Comstock with Jim Moran’s millionaire ex-wife.”

Editor: To date, we have no full-throated (if any) Donald Trump
endorsement from Mrs. Comstock. 

“Here’s an opportunity to help Rep. Comstock — and get the inside scoop on political races around the country.”

Editor: The Conservative Review (Mark Levin’s publication) gives Mrs. Comstock a Liberty Score of F or 20%.

Don’t lose hope, however, NumbersUSA gives Mrs. Comstock an immigration-reduction grade of D or 30%.

Comstock at a glance.

“Congressman Greg Walden, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee will be joining Barbara for a special campaign fundraiser to raise badly needed funds.”

Editor:  At least Mr. Walden has a Liberty Score as high as F or 36%!

On the other hand, Mr. Walden has an immigration-reduction score of F or 13%.

Walden at a glance.

The Northern Virginia Republican Business Forum is certainly entitled to its flavor of Republicanism.

If Mrs. Comstock and Mr. Walden represent their flavor, the Business Forum might reasonably claim that these two candidates represent the kind of globalism and multiculturalism-lite that is the future of a GOP led someday by a president Paul Ryan.

And good sports that we are, we would grin and bear it when they revealed that we and other Trumpers are not only deplorable — but genuine Virginia country-class knuckle-draggers.

But the Northern Virginia Republican Business Forum should try to keep the rhetoric pushing their money-raisers within the Plausible Zone — not stray into the Gaslighting Zone.**

Your Congressman & Mine — How Do We Get Them To Speak For Patriots? Back Up A President Trump? Do The Right Thing In The Lame Duck Session Next Month?

Right now, most of our attention is necessarily directed to electing Donald Trump on November 8.

But on November 14 the Lame Duck Congress convenes, and presumably will try to enact a giant spending package for the balance of the Fiscal Year 2017, supporting (or not) all Federal programs through September 30 of 2017.

How faithfully will the current Congress respond to even an unmistakable referendum-for-change Trump victory?

With his core issues, Trump has struck a chord with the GOP Base, and with patriotic or America First independents and Democrats.

  • Tailoring our immigration to American needs, and regaining full control of our borders;
  • Restructuring trade agreements to protect Americans interests and sovereignty, and our workers’ jobs;
  • Filtering Jihadists out of our immigration and refugee stream, as well as those who are not congenial to our values.

These goals, however, are hardly on the top of the Congressional GOP leadership’s menu.

Ever since the GOP took control of the House in January 2011, the leadership has done its utmost to avoid confrontations with president Obama.

And the current GOP leadership will most likely try to undermine a president Trump unless patriotic voters actively prevent it.

Personal ambitions tied to the Ruling Class come into play here.

Breitbart’s Julia Hahn explains in her Ready for Ryan? Paul Ryan Refuses to Rule Out Running for President: ‘Never Say Never’

“Ryan would presumably run as a Republican, however, polls show that on the two of the most significant issues of the 2016 election, Ryan finds himself on the opposite side of roughly 9 in 10 Republican voters.

On the issue of trade, Ryan has a long record of being a vocal advocate for global trade. Yet a recent POLITICO pro-Harvard poll found that 85% of Republicans believe that so-called ‘free trade’ has lost more U.S. jobs than it has created. The poll also found that 66% of Republicans believe that free trade has lowered U.S. wages. By a nearly three-to-one margin, Republicans believe free trade agreements have ‘hurt’ their community rather than helped it.

Similarly, according to Pew polling data, Ryan’s position on immigration is opposed by 92 percent of the GOP electorate. Pew found that more than 9 in 10 Republicans would like to see immigration levels frozen or reduced. However, Ryan has a two-decade-long history of pushing to increase the nation’s already record high rate of immigration.” (Highlighting Forum’s throughout.)

Moreover the current GOP leadership represents very wealthy donors. It responds to lobbying muscle such as that of the US Chamber of Commerce.

So we must be prepared to help Donald Trump with the Congress just as soon as he becomes president-elect.

Write this down: The GOP leadership simply are not our friends.

Patriots As “Political Orphans”

Back in 2013, Angelo Codevilla addressed the problems the GOP base encountered with the Congress–

“On January 1, 2013 one third of Republican congressmen, following their leaders, joined with nearly all Democrats to legislate higher taxes and more subsidies for Democratic constituencies. Two thirds voted no, following the people who had elected them. For generations, the Republican Party had presented itself as the political vehicle for Americans whose opposition to ever-bigger government financed by ever-higher taxes makes them a ‘country class.’ 
Yet modern Republican leaders, with the exception of the Reagan Administration, have been partners in the expansion of government, indeed in the growth of a government-based ‘ruling class.’ They have relished that role despite their voters. Thus these leaders gradually solidified their choice to no longer represent what had been their constituency, but to openly adopt the identity of junior partners in that ruling class. By repeatedly passing bills that contradict the identity of Republican voters and of the majority of Republican elected representatives, the Republican leadership has made political orphans of millions of Americans.”  (Highlighting Forum’s throughout.)

By 2016, orphaning of conservative voters had gotten palpably worse. There is no longer “a majority of Republican elected representatives” speaking for the GOP base.

Last Thursday, Daniel Horowitz declared in his Congressional Bank Robbery: Republicans cave on everything and leave town–

“And in fact, things have gotten worse since Republicans won control of the Senate in 2014. Whereas before 2015 Harry Reid only controlled the Senate, now he controls both the Senate and the House. At least when Democrats controlled the Senate, the House had to pretend to put up a fight. Now they just follow McConnell’s, R-Ky. (F, 42%) lead, which is Reid’s command.
Thus, the House rolled over and slammed the bill on the floor without three days to consult with the members. Rather than working with conservatives to craft a Republican bill, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc. (F, 53%) and Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. (F, 38%) sandbagged their members with Reid’s, D-Nev. (F, 2%) steaming pile. The CR passed the House by a 342-85 margin. Only 75 Republicans voted no, a mere 30 percent of the House GOP Conference.”

Conservative Review senior editor Horowitz summarized the damage done by the just-passed continuing resolution–

“This bill funded every major Democratic policy priority with no meaningful limitations on a single illegal, abusive, or harmful executive action taken by the president. It contained no limitations or reforms to Obamacare, Planned Parenthood funding, Obama’s transgender bathroom mandate on the states, sanctuary cities, or DACA amnesty. What was particularly disturbing about this blank check is that the timing of the budget deadline coincided with two new harmful unilateral policies of the Obama administration: the giveaway of oversight over internet IP addresses to a foreign entity and a net increase in refugee admission for the new fiscal year — all on top of the existing increase in refugees from the Middle East during a time of grave homeland security concerns.”

Only 75 Republicans voted no on that Continuing Resolution last week.

Unless your House member was one of them, you have some work to do to bring your Representative to a better mind.

Stay tuned for some concrete suggestions you can put into action in your state!

Most Time Sensitive! Brian Babin Urges Spending Pause Now In Continuing Resolution For Importing Refugees from Islamist Areas.

Republican U S Representative Brian Babin (Texas 36) again showed his vision last Thursday on reforming the refugee resettlement program.

Together with 37 of his colleagues he wrote the House leadership – – –

“We believe it is prudent and in the best interest of the American people that language be included in the upcoming FY 2017 Continuing Resolution to restore Congressional oversight and authority over the refugee program.  Specifically we would ask that you consider putting language in the continuing resolution that would:
1.      Prevent federal funds from being used to admit to the United States refugees from Syria, the Middle East and North Africa until the following conditions are met:
         a. Federal Immigration, law enforcement and national security agencies put in place processes to ensure that refugee and related programs are not able to be co-opted by would be terrorists;
         b. That such process and programs are provided to the Congress in both classified and public formats;
         c. That a longer-term monitoring process be put into place for those admitted to the U.S. as refugees; and
         d. That no federal funds may be used for refugee travel to the U.S. or any U.S. resettlement of refugees from this troubled region until Congress has passed by joint resolution a bill that specifically approves funding for such purposes.
2.      Permit U.S. funds to continue to be used to provide for the safety of refugees overseas, including housing, food and medical aid.” (Highlighting Forum’s)

Here is a list of the 37 U. S. House members who joined Mr. Babin in his letter to the House leadership last Thursday – –

Rep. Brian Babin (TX)
Rep. Dave Brat (VA)
Rep. Bob Gibbs (OH)
Rep. Doug LaMalfa (CA)
Rep. David Rouzer (NC)
Rep. Ralph Abraham (LA)
Rep. Scott DesJarlais (TN)
Rep. Robert Pittenger (NC)
Rep. George Holding (NC)
Rep. Barry Loudermilk (GA)
Rep. Glen Grothman (WI)
Rep. Lou Barletta (PA)
Rep. Randy Weber (TX)
Rep. Jeff Duncan (SC)
Rep. Jim Bridenstine (OK)
Rep. Warren Davidson (OH)
Rep. Tim Huelskamp (KS)
Rep. Kevin Cramer (ND)
Rep. Diane Black (TN)
Rep. Mark Meadows (NC)
Rep. Mo Brooks (AL)
Rep. Andy Harris, M.D. (MD)
Rep. Lee Zeldin (NY)
Rep. Jody Hice (GA)
Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX)
Rep. Kenny Marchant (TX)
Rep. Dan Newhouse (WA)
Rep. Joe Wilson (SC)
Rep. Steve King (IA)
Rep. Michael C. Burgess (TX)
Rep. Walter B. Jones (NC)
Rep. Sam Johnson (TX)
Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ)
Rep. Leonard Lance (NJ)
Rep. Cynthia M. Lummis (WY)
Rep. Jeff Miller (FL)
Rep. Ted S. Yoho (FL)
Rep. Lamar Smith (TX)

We thank the 38 and urge them to follow up with a phone call to the House GOP leadership!

The Speaker, the Majority Leader, and the House Appropriations chair need to know that the signers are serious–not doing so merely as a constituent “courtesy” with no real expectation of action.

But wherever you are in this grand country —if your GOP member is not on this letter — ask your own Representative to call the House GOP leadership and urge them to follow Brian Babin’s recommendations.

Why is this matter “Most Time Sensitive”? 

“Congress could have a continuing resolution to the President’s desk by the end of the week so long as it is not too loaded with policy riders distasteful to Democrats in both bodies who will be needed to assure passage. A restriction against increased resourcing to a Planned Parenthood affiliate in Puerto Rico may have been dropped over the weekend, clearing the way for Zika funding in a bill expected to be dropped this afternoon in the Senate ahead of a planned procedural vote. Last week, the White House sent over a $2.6 billion emergency funding request for flood recovery in Louisiana and the state’s congressional delegation are lobbying that resources to go out the door with the spending bill. Some Republicans are said to have demands in turn, such as halting admission of refugees from Syria where dangers have emanated since the rise of ISIS and its adherents have made trouble in Europe and elsewhere.” –fednet.net (Highlighting Forum’s)

VA-10 Barbara Comstock Says She Gets Results. She Is Right. But Are They The Results We Want?


Last December 18, U.S. Representative Barbara Comstock (VA-10) voted for the Obama-enabling, giant FY 2016 omnibus appropriations bill.

On the eve of passage, Stephen Bannon and Julia Hahn gave us chapter and verse on this disaster– “Paul Ryan Betrays America: $1.1 Trillion, 2,000-Plus Page Omnibus Bill Funds ‘Fundamental Transformation of America’”

They wrote:

“Paul Ryan’s first major legislative achievement is a total and complete sell-out of the American people masquerading as an appropriations bill.”



On December 17, Daniel Horowitz made up a revealing list of “Paul Ryan’s 11 Christmas Gifts to Obama”

“At 1:34 on Wednesday morning, the party of Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan dropped their Christmas package off at the White House lawn
in the form of a 2,009-page omnibus spending bill and a 233-page tax subsidy bill.  The House plans to vote on the tax bill today and the spending bill tomorrow.  The enormity of this betrayal is breathtaking. At the same time, however, it perfectly illustrates why the American people are done with the Republican Party as currently constituted, as witnessed by the direction of the presidential primary.  Amazingly, many ‘D.C. conservatives’ are giving Paul Ryan a pass.”

On New Year’s Day, Blue Ridge Forum looked back at Republican performance on this budget bill: “The Omnibus: The Moral Failure of the House Conservatives — Did They Even Try To Derail The Omnibus Express?”

We wrote:

“But PowerLine’s Paul Mirengoff has a sharper perspective in his ‘GOP leadership caves on Gosar Amendment’–
“From the Politico article, it’s clear that Freedom Caucus members like that Ryan is giving them face time. This represents the triumph of vanity over principle. Ryan is playing these folks and they seem happy enough to be played. (Highlighting Forum’s)”

Back to the present. In the next few days, the House GOP leadership will have to decide on how to proceed on appropriations for FY 2017.

But what kind of continuing resolution? How long will it extend? What will the GOP leadership try to do with Obamatrade in the lame duck session right after the November 8 election?

What will the GOP leadership do this month to keep U.S. control of the Internet?

Paul Ryan loves Obamatrade, he is a champion for Big Immigration, and he doesn’t want the U.S. to screen out Muslims from those coming to our country as immigrants or refugees.


Mrs. Comstock’s voting record as a Republican U.S. Representative has not been reassuring.

Lest we forget —

Barbara Comstock has a Conservative Review score of “F” (21%)  and a NumbersUSA Immigration-Reduction Grade of “D” (30%).

Meanwhile the House GOP leadership is doubling down in their support for her. Simone Pathé brings us news of the “House GOP Super PAC Investing Record Sums in 15 Districts”
“Virginia’s 10th District: $1.5 million on TV and digital.”

So what more “results” will Barbara Comstock help the Speaker get?

  • Passage of Obamatrade?
  • Expanded “refugee” seeding of our cities and towns?
  • Ever faster replacement of high-tech US workers with cheaper foreign labor?
  • A reckless give-away of the Internet to foreign control?

Perhaps Mrs. Comstock should instead revisit Donald Trump’s plans to put America first.
