Carr: Carlie Baker’s baying like a moonbat

Deval’s ‘twin’ on immigration

 

By:

Howie Carr

It’s time for Charlie Baker to make up his mind whose side he’s on.

The law-abiding taxpaying U.S. citizens, or the hordes of freeloading illegal aliens swarming across the Rio Grande.

The dithering GOP front-runner put his foot in his mouth again this week, at a debate where he was asked which current Republican politician is his role model.

Charlie’s brain froze up. Oh dear God, they would insist on a Republican. What a conundrum for a Harvard man, being asked to name a good Republican. First there was dead silence, then finally Charlie asked if he could pick Ronald Reagan. No, he was told, Dutch is dead. More silence. Finally he blurted out:

“Jeb Bush.”

Jeb Bush! Another Republican with an asterisk — a RINO. Jeb Bush has only said one memorable thing in his whole career, and that was when he said illegal immigration is “an act of love.”

A love of welfare, certainly.

Baker’s latest faux pas comes just a month after the Obama administration tried to dump hundreds if not thousands of undocumented Democrats on the commonwealth. Gov. Deval Patrick had invited them in — after all, the state only spends $1.8 billion a year on welfare for illegal aliens, so what’s another few hundred million per annum ad infinitum?

The elected officials in the communities that were going to be devastated by this influx of thousands of new Tsarnaevs raised holy hell. But Charlie Baker backed Deval, his fellow Harvard grad.

“I think it’s incumbent on the states to be cooperative with the federal government on this issue,” he said on July 21, “given the humanitarian crisis that’s at hand.”

Charlie, how about the humanitarian crisis facing the U.S. population, being forced to take in millions of disease-ridden, non-English-speaking, unskilled non-workers and having to support them forever? Whatever happened to charity begins at home? This is not their home, Charlie, it’s ours. How about that humanitarian crisis, Charlie?

“I think it’s important,” Charlie continued, “for the federal government to be very specific with the commonwealth about exactly how it’s going to work.”

Here’s how it’s going to work. We Americans will work, and they won’t. We’ll support ourselves, and we’ll support them.

Now, we know how Democrats feel about this — they’re hot to trot to import a new welfare-dependent underclass, to keep themselves in power. They’ve gone from being the party of the working class to being the party of the non-working class.

The other night on WBZ, Democrat candidate Don Berwick was asked if he’d ever heard of Matthew Denice, the Milford motorcyclist run down and killed by a drunken illegal. Berwick had no idea who this U.S. citizen victim was, and when he was told, this moonbat’s moonbat didn’t seem to care.

“You can pick anecdotes to make any point,” Berwick sniffed.

There you have it. Illegal alien wants handout — humanitarian crisis. American killed by drunk illegal alien on welfare — an anecdote.

Charlie, listen to me. You can’t get elected by trying to out-moonbat the moonbats. To paraphrase Harry S Truman, if you give voters a choice between a Democrat and a Democrat, they’ll pick the Democrat every time.

On St. Patrick’s Day at Halitosis Hall, Deval Patrick made a joke: “It turns out that Charlie Baker and I are identical twins.”

It also turns out, Deval wasn’t kidding.

House Passes Senate Cliff Bill! – More Stimulus For Green Companies!

January 2, 2013 in America's Collapse, Bail Out, Economic, Economic Deception, Economy, Global Warming, Government

FiscalThe House gave its approval Tuesday night to the Senate bill halting massive  tax hikes and delaying a risky round of spending cuts, sending the package to  the president’s desk and likely averting for now an economy-stalling fiscal  crisis.

The 257-167vote came after a day of high drama on Capitol Hill,  during which conservative House lawmakers voiced serious concern about the  Senate bill’s lack of spending cuts.

Rank-and-file Republicans initially predicted they would tinker with  the package, raising the possibility the Senate would abandon it and nothing  would get done before the new congressional class is seated Thursday.

But House leaders soon learned they did not have a majority behind any  spending-cut plan, and allowed the straight vote. More Democrats supported the  bill than Republicans.

The result, once Obama signs it, is that tax hikes that technically kicked in  Jan. 1 for most Americans would largely be halted.

The bill would nix the tax increases for families making under $450,000,  while letting rates rise for those making above that threshold. It would also  extend unemployment insurance for another year, while patching up a host of  other expiring provisions and delaying automatic spending cuts for two months.  Those cuts, which would hit defense heavily, will instead be offset with a blend  of tax increases and other spending cuts.

Americans will still see a 2-point increase this month in their Social  Security tax, as Congress did not opt to extend that payroll tax holiday.

The House was able to shoehorn in the vote before the markets open Wednesday.  Uncertainty about a deal threatened to wreak havoc on Wall Street. And  economists warned that any prolonged stalemate into 2013 threatened to pull the  broader economy back into a recession. In total, more than $600 billion in tax  hikes and spending cuts were set to take effect this year.

The vote Tuesday came amid rising pressure from House Democrats and the  Senate side, which approved the bill early Tuesday morning. Democrats made clear  that they would pin the blame squarely on House Republicans if the tax hikes  were not averted.

“This is the House’s wisdom in making the best of a bad situation,” one House  GOP leadership aide told Fox News. “We had a bad hand from the start, but we’re  avoiding being blamed for taking us off the cliff.”

Still, a number of House Republicans came out against the package, including  No. 2 House Republican, Eric Cantor.

“I do not support it,” Cantor told reporters after a closed-door meeting with  fellow Republicans.

Rep. Steve LaTourette, R-Ohio, said earlier that the sentiment among House  Republicans was to amend the bill to incorporate more spending cuts. Rep.  Spencer Bachus, R-Ala., echoed the statement.

But other Republicans, while voicing opposition to the bill, acknowledged  that it could pass the House.

Congress already missed the New Year’s Eve deadline for action, which  technically triggered tax hikes. Without a resolution soon, taxes would have  jumped by $2,400 on average for families with incomes of $50,000 to $75,000,  according to a study by the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center. And because consumers  would get less of their paychecks to spend, businesses and jobs would suffer as  well.

House conservatives had begun voicing frustration Monday night about the  lopsided ratio of tax increases in the plan, as compared with net spending cuts.  The bill contained roughly $620 billion in tax hikes, and just a fraction of  that in spending cuts. As one House Republican told Fox News, “I can’t imagine a  ratio such as that warming our fiscal hearts.”

Not all Democrats were on board either. Many voiced frustration that tax  hikes would only affect those making above $450,000 – when President Obama  originally campaigned on raising them for households making above $250,000.

“Looks like a very bad deal the way this is shaping up,” Sen. Tom Harkin,  D-Iowa, said Monday. Harkin voted against the Senate bill early Tuesday morning,  as did Sens. Tom Carper, D-Del.; Mike Lee, R-Utah; Rand Paul, R-Ky.;   Richard Shelby, R-Ala.; Michael Bennet, D-Colo.; Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa; and  Marco Rubio, R-Fla.

The fiscal deal, though, still pushes off a permanent decision on the  spending cuts until two months down the road, when lawmakers could find  themselves in a similar position. And lawmakers are poised to renew a fight in a  matter of weeks over raising the debt ceiling – which the U.S. government would  have hit Dec. 31 if not for the Treasury Department taking emergency  measures.

Fox News’ Ed Henry, Chad Pergram and Mike Emanuel contributed to this  report.

False congressional fiscal conservatives begin to reveal their true selves.

Andrew Napolitano | November 29, 2012

 

When President Obama won re-election last month by a larger margin than even his most fervent supporters had expected, though with fewer popular votes than he received in 2008, most commentators initially opined that not much had changed in Washington. The president would remain in the White House for another four years, the Democrats would keep control of the Senate, and the House would stay in Republican hands. Most Republicans re-elected to both houses of Congress had publicly pledged not to vote to raise taxes under any circumstances. And most of those Republicans have adhered to that promise—until now.

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, the false congressional fiscal conservatives in the Republican Party began to reveal their true selves. Led by the Republican presidential standard bearer in 2008, Arizona Sen. John McCain, at least a half-dozen Republican members of Congress have renounced their public promises never to vote to raise taxes. In the case ofC Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., Congressman and Senator-elect Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., they had restated their promises, directly or indirectly, as recently as last month during their successful campaigns. Did they blatantly dupe the voters?  Did they genuinely change their minds? Did they ever sincerely accept the pro-freedom anti-tax logic?

The Founders certainly embraced the pro-freedom anti-tax logic, as they gave us a Constitution that barred the federal government from imposing any direct tax on any persons. That was part of the genius of the document. If the feds really needed cash, they’d need to tax the states. If the states were feeling over-taxed, they could block federal taxes in the Senate, where for 135 years senators were chosen by state governments as delegates to the Senate, rather than elected by voters. This procedure, too, was part of the Founders’ genius. It came about in order to assure a place at the federal table for the states, many of which were older than the federal government and all of which retained their sovereignty when they voluntarily joined the union. This procedure for choosing senators was also a check on the growth of the federal government.

Those constitutional provisions were cast aside during the progressive era about 100 years ago, when, during a period of just five years, the Constitution was amended so that the states lost their place at the federal table and Congress could tax incomes, and the feds got a new printing press for cash in the form of the Federal Reserve.

I have described this dreadful time in our history in my new book, Theodore and Woodrow: How Two American Presidents Destroyed Constitutional Freedom. They did so by inverting the concept of limited government. With the exception of Abraham Lincoln, every president from George Washington to TR’s predecessor, William McKinley, accepted the truism that the federal government is one of limited powers, and it may only in engage in behavior that is specifically authorized by the Constitution or reasonably inferable therefrom.

Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, who ran against each other and who hated each other, turned this value on its head. They jointly argued that the Constitution does not mean what it says and is not the Supreme Law of the Land as it states. They held that the federal government can do whatever it wishes unless those wishes are expressly prohibited by the Constitution.

For 100 years, the Republican Party resisted the progressive onslaught. As recently as this past election just a few weeks ago, Republicans argued that increased tax revenue, whether from increased tax rates or from decreased tax deductions, effectively moves wealth from the productive sector and delivers it to the consuming sector—which would be the government.

This argument is really one of the basic laws of economics, so why are Republicans now rejecting it? I suspect that they are drunk with power and have concluded that they—just like Obama did—can assure their re-elections, their continued possession of governmental power, if they deliver bigger pieces of the federal pie to the folks back home. Stated differently, they are unwilling to address a system that soon will deliver more in entitlement payments and interest payments on government debt than it collects in revenue by reducing the entitlements, shrinking the government, cutting the debt, returning to the confines of the Constitution and letting hardworking Americans retain what is theirs. Instead, they now want to raise federal taxes.

They would be unwise to try to pull this off—and would be wise to recall recent history. The last Republican president to pledge “Read my lips. NO NEW TAXES” and then violate that promise was dispatched by the voters to a hotel suite in Houston, rather than to four more years in the White House. I bet George Herbert Walker Bush today would stick to his pledge.

US Jobs – 23.5 Million Americans Are Unemployed Or Underemployed – Weekly US Unemployment Aplication At 374,000

U.S. Jobless Claims Unchanged At 374,000
By Jeffry Bartash Published August 30, 2012 MarketWatch Pulse

WASHINGTON –  Applications for U.S. jobless benefits were flat last week at a seasonally adjusted 374,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch had projected claims would fall to 370,000. Initial claims from two weeks ago were revised up to 374,000 from an original reading of 372,000, based on more complete data collected at the state level.

[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5RJsCBVnbg’]

The average of new claims over the past month, meanwhile, rose by 1,500 to 370,250. The four-week average reduces seasonal volatility in the weekly data and is seen as a more accurate barometer of labor-market trends. Also, Labor said continuing claims decreased by 5,000 to a seasonally adjusted 3.32 million in the week ended Aug. 18. Continuing claims reflect the number of people already receiving benefits. About 5.53 million people received some kind of state or federal benefit in the week ended Aug. 11, down 62,253 from the prior week. Total claims are reported with a two-week lag.

Tea Party activists may keep low profile at first GOP convention
By Cristina Corbin Published August 25, 2012 FoxNews.com
Next week marks the Tea Party’s first Republican convention.
But despite its role in helping the party win the House majority in 2010, the movement is expected to keep a relatively low profile inside the arena, activists say. Some Tea Party groups are deliberately giving the party space to spotlight its nominee, though others claim they’re being snubbed by GOP leaders.

[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8P59bHnRz8′]

The Tea Party, of course, is composed of thousands of different groups, each with its own causes. A Tea Party scene could erupt in Tampa at any moment. But unlike some other factions heading into the once-every-four-years affair, the Tea Party does not appear to have a concerted agenda.
Gop Platform Emerging Draws Praise and Criticism
[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShUpHGnccos’]

Instead, the movement may just settle for speaking roles for favored politicians and shout-outs in the platform.

The four-day convention in Tampa will kick off Monday with speeches from Tea Party favorites, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Senate candidate Ted Cruz of Texas. The party’s draft platform that will be voted on includes many of the conservative policies championed by the movement.

FreedomWorks, a Washington-based Tea Party-aligned think tank started by former House GOP leader Dick Armey, announced Wednesday that nearly all of its “Freedom Platform” has been adopted by the GOP, including a repeal of President Obama’s health care law, an end to tax hikes and an audit of the Federal Reserve.

“They were very open to our ideas and willing to work with us,” FreedomWorks vice president Russ Walker said of the platform-writing committee chaired by Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, North Dakota Sen. John Hoeven and Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn.
The Tea Party’s visibility beyond that, though, may be minimal at the convention, activists say. The expectation has drawn mixed reactions from the loosely organized anti-tax movement.

“They like the work we’re doing, but they’re afraid because they don’t want to turn off independents with the Tea Party brand,” said Todd Cefaratti of the group, TheTeaParty.Net. The group has filed a petition called “Let Them Speak,” urging the Republican National Committee to allow Tea Party leaders to speak at the convention.

“You get these moderate Republicans and they say ‘I don’t want to offend Grandma Independent,’” Cefaratti said. TheTeaParty.Net is a chief sponsor of the “Unity Rally 2012” to be held at a Tampa church on the eve of the convention, featuring speeches by Tea Party darlings and former presidential candidates Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain.

“It’s our response to a lot of our leaders being shut out of the convention,” Cefaratti said.
Another group, The Kitchen Table Patriots, also expressed resentment over the Tea Party’s representation at the convention.

“The amount of effort that the GOP went through to make sure that no Tea Party person went to the convention was unbelievable,” said Anastasia Przybylski, one of the group’s co-founders. “I did not see it coming.”

Przybylski’s counterpart, Ana Puig, claims the GOP in Bucks County, Pa., spent $70,000 to derail her run to become a delegate at the convention. Puig is now paying her way to go as an “honorary delegate,” she said, meaning “I can do everything except vote.”

“What is the convention going to accomplish except that Mitt Romney will formally be the candidate? It’s a shoulder-rubbing event,” Puig said.

Puig, however, said she is happy the Tea Party’s platform has been well-received by the RNC, adding that she’s hopeful “we would see a trickle down effect to the GOP on the local level,” she said.

“I am looking at this trip as a way for us, Tea Party, and GOP to try to mend some fences and move side by side to secure a big win in November.”

But not everyone within the movement believes Tea Party leaders should be on prominent display during the convention.

“This is the Mitt Romney-Paul Ryan show and it should be,” said Sal Russo of the Tea Party Express, one of the most visible factions of the movement. “We don’t have an agenda beyond that.”

“I would consider this an extremely successful convention for the Tea Party,” Russo said, noting that Romney was always among his group’s top three picks for a presidential nominee. “We thought we shouldn’t try and intrude on a convention that we’re happy with.”

Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, echoed Russo’s sentiment, characterizing the convention as “more style than substance.”

“The purpose is to legally nominate their candidate,” Martin told FoxNews.com. “Tea Party Patriots are far more concerned about what laws are going to be passed than what they’re doing at a party in Florida and Charlotte.”

“As long as our values are represented, we are making an effect. What we will be happy about is when bills are signed into law that repeal the president’s health care law, and when the budget is balanced and when we’re on the road to recovery,” she said. “The convention is just a very small step along the way.”
