We are Winning!

 

If this current trend continues, we will be known as the generation that restored liberty to America.

It is the general entitlement attitude; of “who can get me more free stuff” that has given us elected officials like our current Washington administration.  We need to change the attitude in order to change the elected leaders.

Are we changing the attitude?  Check out this current story “Americans Have Never Been So Unlikely To Re-elect Their Congresssmen”  http://dailycaller.com/2014/01/25/americans-have-never-been-so-unlikely-to-re-elect-their-congressmen/  The story claims that just 17 percent of registered voters think any member of Congress deserves re-election.

Alas, the tide is changing!

Mitch McConnell and the BAE Systems Earmarks

McConnell’s Troubles with the Tea Party

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is a fifth-term senator from Kentucky. He is the minority leader in the 110th Congress and sits on the Senate Appropriations Committee. He currently is in a heated primary with challenger Matt Bevin that will be decided in the upcoming Kentucky Republican primaries on May 20th, 2014.

McConnell seems to demonstrate time after time that he is no friend to the Tea Party. McConnell’s big problems began when according to Breitbart, during a conference call organized by Karl Rove’s Crossroads organization for large donors and their advisors in October, McConnell stated that the “Tea Party was nothing but a bunch of bullies and you know how you deal with schoolyard bullies? You punch them in the nose and that’s what we’re going to do (McConnell: Tea party ‘Bullies’ Who Need Punch in Nose, 2013).” This may have been in response to Tea Party Nation withdrawing its support for McConnell in early October citing a “hugely revealing” report by Glenn Beck that McConnell had allegedly referred to tea party senators as traitors. (Tea Party Group Withdraws Endorsement of Mitch McConnell, 2013).

The opposition to McConnell’s primary campaign is continuing to grow. Adding to McConnell’s tea party problem was the recent announcement that Freedom Works endorsed tea party-backed Kentucky businessman Matt Bevin in his effort to unseat McConnell in the state’s Republican primary (Freedom Works Backs Tea Party Challenger to McConnell in KY Primary, 2014). McConnell’s hostility toward the Tea Party is why hundreds of Tea Party activists from neighboring states are coming to the Bluegrass state to assist with toppling McConnell (Tea Party Sets Its Sights on Mitch McConnell, 2014). McConnell may have antagonized the wrong group of patriots.

Sen. Mitch McConnell and the Appriss Earmarks

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is a fifth-term senator from Kentucky. He is the minority leader in the 110th Congress and sits on the Senate Appropriations Committee. He currently is in a heated primary with challenger Matt Bevin that will be decided in the upcoming Republican Primaries on May 20th, 2014. A Gravis Marketing poll of 683 registered Republicans conducted on January 2nd, 2014 shows Matt Bevin gaining ground on his opponent as 31% of the respondents said they would vote for him over Mitch McConnell, up from 19.9% in a poll conducted in July 2013.

If the Republican primary were held today, would you vote for Matt Bevin or Mitch McConnell?

The electorate doesn’t seem to be very happy with Sen. McConnell’s stance on the issues. A recent Public Policy Poll showed that 42% would like to see someone more conservative than him for the Republican nominee.

Generally speaking, would you like the Republican nominee for Senate in 2014 be Mitch McConnell or somebody more conservative than him?

Boehner and Chamber Failing US

John Boehner and the Republican leadership are bowing to the Chamber of Commerce on immigration. The Chamber see's the legalization of 20 million low wage workers as a boon to their corporate members. The United States work force participation level is at its lowest point in almost 40 years and the Chamber wants to add another 20 million workers to an already moribund job market.

Let’s Stop Common Core Before It’s Too Late

The State of Kentucky implemented the Common Core State Standards Initiative, also known as Common Core in 2010. Common Core represents a federal takeover of our educational system instead of it being under local control. It’s like Obamacare for schools giving our federal government the perfect medium for indoctrinating our children with their liberal values, ideals and beliefs.

The Northern Kentucky Tea Party held a meeting last November in Crescent Springs titled “Common Core- The Next Step.”  At the meeting it was discussed that we were going to try a get a bill written for the Kentucky General Assembly 2014 legistative session in Frankfort to repeal Common Core.  I have good news to report. On Wednesday January 15th, Northern KY Representative Tom Kerr submitted a bill to basically do away with Common Core titled HB 215. Here is a brief summary of the bill:
