As the Detroit Lions found out in Dallas last Sunday, sometimes it just doesn’t matter how well you play. Unfortunately; the heavens or the poker gods or fate just isn’t in your corner on that day. Yesterday was one of those days for our conservative movement across America.
Just as the Detroit Lions found out, the referee’s made a bad call (which set the Cowboys up to win) and in our case, the behind the scenes maneuvering was simply too much for the weaker House Members to overcome. The power of John Boehner was most assuredly on full display in yesterday’s vote for a new Speaker of the House.
Speaking to the power of the Speaker; read this post from Facebook yesterday. This is an “apology” letter to this representatives constituency and an explanation (lame though it may be) as to “why” he supported John Boehner in the face of overwhelming hostility against this vote.
Congressman Labrador knew full well that by his casting a vote “for John Boehner” will no doubt cause him some very serious issues down the road. He is hoping against hope that the bulk of his constituency will forget his transgression over the next two years. Unfortunately for him, he has several major strikes against that happening. The first being, Labrador serves a voting bloc that is 92% white and is probably the most conservative voting bloc in the entire United States. Western Idaho is nearly 100% rural with ranches, major farming operations and the further North you go, now you’re into timber, mining and the Aryan Nation’s home turf. If you asked me to place a bet on his survival in the next election, I am betting he doesn’t make it.
Raul Labrador is but one yesterday that voted for one of the most despised politicians in Washington, D. C.. Even in the face of knowing full well he might be throwing his political career in the trash bin, this man still voted to send the lying, two-faced, double-crossing Speaker back to the podium with his giant gavel. How much power does this guy have over these Representatives? Nobody knows but the Congressmen and Women themselves, but there is good news in all of this.
YOU, THE PATRIOTS PERFORMED SO WELL. I AM SO VERY PROUD OF EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU.
In the short span of only a day or so, you sent over 20,000 email messages, Capitol Hill received over 10,000 phone calls and 25 strong Republicans voted against this lying piece of “political cow dung”. That is the largest turnout AGAINST A SPEAKER in over 100 years!!
WELL DONE PATRIOTS!
We cannot win them all, but one thing we did do. We sent Capitol Hill into a frenzy trying to save the Speakers political neck. We also sent the message that we are not dead, we are alive and well and growing daily. They are on notice now and do not be deceived; THEY KNOW FULL WELL WE ARE WATCHING THEM AND WE ARE TAKING NOTES!
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND STAY TUNED TO CROWS NEST FOR A MAJOR “HUGE, BIG TIME, HUGE (I think I said that twice) ANNOUNCEMENT” COMING VERY SOON. YOU JUST THOUGHT WE RATTLED THEIR CAGES YESTERDAY, WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO TO THE GOP ELITIST ESTABLISHMENT! hint; Karl Rove is going to be sent to ICU for heart monitoring and the elitist are all going to be on Prozac very shortly.
