Primary Voters Still Voting For Their Own Destruction
Four states held primaries/caucuses last weekend. All four were for presidential preferences. Trump took two. He barely squeaked by Cruz in Kentucky 35.9% -31.6%. Louisiana was also close, Trump 41.1% – 37.8% for fraudster, Ted Cruz. Constitutionally ineligible, Ted Cruz, took two. Kansas: Cruz 48.2% – Trump 23.2% and Maine with Cruz at 45.9% v Trump at 32.6%.
John Kasich, who seems to be vying for the next nomination for Father Teresa finished 3rd in Maine, dead last in Kansas, dead last in Kentucky, dead last in Louisiana. Rubio finished dead last in Maine., 3rd in Kansas, 3rd in Kentucky, 3rd in Louisiana. Count Chocula*, Ted Cruz, is pretending not to kick a dead horse while he pleads for those two to drop out of the race and send their voters to him.
However, a couple of those states were also full ballots for congressional seats, judges, sheriffs and state offices.
A lot of hoopla being played out is there’s a cold revolution going on which is benefiting Donald Trump. Voters are fed up with being betrayed by Washington, DC. Voters are sick of the corrupt criminal enterprise out in Washington, DC. They are spitting right in the eye of the GOP establishment who control everything out in the District of Criminals by voting for Trump. They want an outsider!
Really? Then why in the hell would voters from either party or independents once again vote for congressional incumbents – the very rats who have taken this country to the abyss?
Oh, yes they did. I went and looked at results in several states whose recent primaries included more than just presidential preference. It sickened me. And, in Alabama voters cast several thousand votes for candidates no longer in the race! Carly Fiorina 541; suspended her campaign Feb. 10th. Rent boy, Sen. Lindsay Graham 253; suspended his campaign Dec. 21, 2015. Huckabee 2,528; suspended his campaign Feb. 1st. Rand Paul 1,880; suspended campaign Feb. 3rd. Rick Santorum 616; suspended campaign, Feb. 3rd. Thousands of votes wasted on candidates no longer in the running.
Voters in Arkansas did the same thing. Casting votes for candidates like Bobby Jindal who dropped out of the race, Nov. 17, 2015. Are all those voters that dumb or were they just making a meaningless statement?
In Texas out of 20 congressional seats on the Republican side, a whopping 15 incumbents won their primary! (A few seats were open because of retirement; a couple unopposed; others ran for different offices.) What? How many times have I written this over the past quarter of a decade?
Are Americans Really This Stupid? June 27, 2012
“In mid-2007, the housing market crash predicted by many and ignored by tens of millions ‘suddenly’ became a raging path of destruction across this country. By summer 2008, panic set in and the thieves in the U.S. Congress literally stole the fruits of your labor to unconstitutionally bail out banks and the auto industry. Without a scintilla of constitutional authority, the federal mafia bled us dry while 401(k)s bled in millions of households.
“Americans got angry. They said we will hold you responsible in November 2010!
“Sure, they did. With an approval rating of 11% for the gangsters in the Outlaw Congress, a whopping 86% of incumbents were sent back to Washington, DC., after the 2010 elections to continue stealing us blind and passing more and more unconstitutional laws while allowing alphabet soup agencies like the FDA, EPA and USDA to continue running amok. I suppose one could say it was an improvement over the usual 96% reelection stats for incumbents.
“Great fanfare went on though over the success of getting tea party candidates elected. Newbies who said all the right things while saying nothing. A new set of Band Aid pushers who have yet to understand the critical issues destroying this country: the disabilities of our monetary system, heavy progressive taxation, unconstitutional foreign aid, getting the US out of the UN; the list goes on and on. They just keep on voting for unconstitutional funding while saying the latest flavor of what appeals to voters.
“In a June 24, 2012, poll finding from Rassmussen: “Only 22% of the nation’s likely voters believe the government today has such consent.”
“In other words, 78% of the American people believe the U.S. Congress is doing whatever the hell they want without any regard to we the people.
“There is a great rage blowing across this country because the thieves in the Outlaw Congress aren’t just spending us into poverty, they are destroying a once great constitutional republic. Well, guess what? People are so dang mad, they’ve gone to the polls and once again voted for their own destruction during the 2012 primary cycle.
“Using two web sites, ballotpedia and the official U.S. house web site, I looked at the primary election results for a handful of states – just the U.S. House. It made me sick.
Alabama – 7 districts – 7 incumbents won
California 53 districts – 44 incumbents won
Illinois 18 districts – 14 incumbents won
Indiana – 9 district – 6 incumbents won
Iowa – five districts – 4 incumbents won
Mississippi – 4 districts – 4 incumbents won
North Carolina – 13 districts – 10 incumbents won
Ohio – 18 districts – 15 incumbents won
Pennsylvania – 19 districts – 16 incumbents won
South Carolina – 7 districts – 6 incumbents won
Texas – 36 districts – 30 incumbents won
Virginia 11 districts – 11 incumbents won
“Some seats were uncontested, either party, so the incumbent will walk right back in come November.”
And people wonder why nothing changes in Washington, DC? Hello?
Donald J. Trump & Congressional Incumbents, February 29, 2016
“What do you think will happen if Donald Trump becomes president and he has to go up against a Congress that hates him – with a few exceptions who have endorsed him (Rep. Duncan Hunter, Sen. Jeff Sessions)? I can tell you right now with Paul Ryan and McConnell heading up the two bodies in the legislative branch they will do everything in their power to block and destroy President Trump. Those two scum bags will do everything they can to block Trump from getting rid of all the destructive “free” trade treaties and agreements to judicial nominations. Mark my words. I’ve been at this full time for 26 years. I know how their toxic game is played…
“If your congressional incumbent, or state rep or senator, hasn’t gotten the job done in all the years they’ve been in Congress or the state house, what makes you think they will get the job done if you reward them once again with reelection?
Despite the massive rage across this country in 2010, 2012 and 2014, the American people voted back almost all the same incumbents to Washington, DC, and then expected something different to happen. The newbies have done absolutely nothing in legislation to cure the cancers. Go look at the reelection percentages for every election cycle back to 1964. Nothing changes because the bodies only change just enough to fool the American people into believing change is coming.”
Rep. Louis Gohmert is very popular here in Texas. He won his primary, March 1st which means he will walk right back to Congress in the November elections. Same with Rep. Lamar Smith. Did either one of them vote for:
H.R.3894 – Senior Citizens Tax Elimination Act to do away with income taxes on social security. No. That bill had all of two co-sponors. All those ‘compassionate’ conservatives in Congress talk about loving senior citizens, but when a bill is introduced to stop federal income tax on social security 432 out of 435 reps said no.
H.R.129 – Return to Prudent Banking Act of 2013. Restore Glass-Stegall – House Committee on Financial Services. Bill introduced by Rep Kaptur, Marcy [OH-9], January 3, 2013. No. 83 cosponsors. 2 were Republicans
H.R. 75: American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2013 – To end membership of the United States in the United Nations. Bill introduced January 3, 2013. Bill Sponsor: Rep. Paul Broun Jr. [R-GA10]. The bill had a whopping 10 cosponsors when it died. Neither Gohmert or Smith voted for it.
H.R. 156: To provide for the withdrawal of the United States from the North American Free Trade Agreement. Introduced by a Democrat. No. Zero cosponsors.
Did either of them or all the others who won their primaries starting March 1st introduce legislation to abolish the unconstitutional ‘Federal Reserve’, tell the truth about the nature of the federal income tax, abolish the unconstitutional Federal Department of Education, Health & Human Services, EPA; stop raping us in unconstitutional foreign aid and a million other unconstitutional expenditures? No.
Support former Congressman Ron Paul’s bill to abolish the unconstitutional ‘Federal’ Reserve if they were in office then (2007) or since? No. Dr. Paul’s bill had zero co-sponsors. Did your incumbent introduce and fight to get passed an end to the scam called withholding taxes? Ron Paul did several times; his bills went no where.
The tax-withholding scam, October 21, 2005. Instead of the nearly $2 TRILLION raped from the American people in those taxes, think about it going back into the economy. When Americans have no disposable income they only spend on things like the rent, food and gas money to go to work to earn money to give to the tax man to give away to foreign banking entities. How many incumbents voted for the NDAA, renewal of the freedom killing Patriot Act? A majority of those ‘conservatives’ in the U.S. House.
I also checked Alabama which has 7 districts. Two were uncontested (GOP only) so those crooks will go back to Congress and the other 4 all won their primaries so they, too, will go back to Washington, DC and spend us into oblivion with never once addressing the core cancers killing this country. The same incumbents who continue to vote for more borrowed billions for endless, unconstitutional, un-declared ‘wars’ over in the Middle East.
I’ve covered this in previous columns but it needs to be said again: A legally elected president has few enumerated duties under Art. II, Sec. 2 of the U.S. Constitution:
Commander-in-Chief when called into service. He may require the opinion, in writing, of the principal officer in each of the executive departments, upon any subject relating to the duties of their respective offices, and he shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment.
He shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States, whose appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by law: but the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the courts of law, or in the heads of departments.
The President shall have power to fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate, by granting commissions which shall expire at the end of their next session.
Donald Trump can negotiate trade treaties but those treaties have to be ratified by a legally seated U.S. Senate. Reelect a majority of “free” traders in the senate who have voted for job killing treaties – like Juan McCain who has said NAFTA is a resounding success for Americans – and what do you think will happen with Trump’s efforts to bring home American jobs?
Many Democrats are against “free” trade but we the people gave Republicans a majority in the U.S. Senate in 2014 and it’s likely they will keep that majority come November. Rent boy, Sen. Lindsay Graham, hates Trump as does Mitch McConnell. The people might give Donald Trump the presidency but with all the same incumbents in the U.S. Senate who want him destroyed it’s like a gun with no bullets. Trump can negotiate treaties in the best interests of America and the Senate with the same incumbents could stall any ratifications until the next presidential election. Yes, they can.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record since 1993, it is just this issue regarding the fraudulent ratification of the Seventeenth Amendment that has killed states rights regarding treaties. As my regular readers know I filed a lawsuit regarding the non-ratified Seventeenth Amendment. The appeals court ruled against me a couple of months ago. I submitted court certified historical documents which proved beyond any legal doubt that amendment to the U.S. Constitution was NOT ratified by enough states. No doubt whatsoever.
The Third Circuit here in Texas said they didn’t care. Those judges simply ignored hard evidence in favor of fraud. The decision was, as attorneys who fight in the federal arena, called it a ‘hose job’. The truth doesn’t matter to judges in this state any more than they do in other states. Political expediency over the U.S. Constitution.
A president cannot introduce legislation, he can only veto a bill or sign one into law.
For the love of God, just what do voters think is going to happen if at the end of this primary season 90% or higher of incumbents win? Why, those same incumbents who have destroyed this country will win in November and go right back to Washington, DC.
What is it people don’t understand about this? No, it’s not the other party’s incumbent, it’s YOUR incumbent just like it has been mine for the almost ten years I’ve lived in the 19th Congressional District here in Texas. Thankfully my incumbent is retiring so voters actually picked out of a large field one of my top two choices for Congress. He should win in November, but one or two constitutionally grounded newbies is NOT going to bring change. It has to be hundreds booted from the Outlaw Congress.
It’s bad enough dogs like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are going back next January, but for the people of this country to again reelect 90% or higher of current incumbents is committing national suicide.
What? Do voters think their incumbent in Congress who hasn’t gotten the job done in all the time they’ve been in office whether it’s 2 years or 20 years is going to suddenly have an epiphany and wake up a constitutionalist?
I don’t know about other states but I can tell you where this ‘group think’ herding comes from here in Texas:
Sincere, Well-Meaning Conservatives Are Killing US, February 3, 2014
“I’ve been in the trenches full time for the past 23 years. I’ve seen, heard and read ignorance by very highly educated people every day of the week. Now, that might sound like a complete juxtaposition, but it’s not. Let me give you this example because it’s not just educated, elected members of the Outlaw Congress and your state legislature, it’s sincere, well meaning conservatives who simply do not understand the issues. Their ignorance is killing us and this is how.
“Last week I received a beautiful color mailing encouraging you to vote early by mail; it is a sample ballot from the Conservative Republicans of Texas. While I ‘m registered no party, I always receive a Republican ballot on election day when I vote; the nice ladies just hand it to me. I blocked out the name of the MD who gave a statement and signed his name representing that organization. I’m not out to embarrass anyone. According to his statement, he’s been part of that group since 1992 “…to present voters a listing of the best qualified, conservative candidates. This is the original endorsement slate of conservative Republican candidates.” I was absolutely appalled when I looked at the sample ballot.
“U.S. Senator. The incumbent, John Cornyn has seven challengers. The Conservative Republicans of Texas want Texans to reelect an individual who has defecated on the Bill of Rights at every opportunity. He voted for the misnamed “Patriot Act”. Voted to extend that monster. Voted yes on the NDAA. Cornyn has voted consistently to kill American jobs and sovereignty. Voted yes on promoting free trade with Peru. Voted yes on free trade agreement with Oman. Voted yes on implementing CAFTA for Central America free-trade. Voted yes on establishing free trade between US & Singapore. Voted yes on establishing free trade between the US and Chile. He has done nothing to get us out of NAFTA or GATT/WTO. He’s nothing more than a pimp for supranational corporations.
“Fiscal conservative? Cornyn Voted to Let Harry Reid Fund ObamaCare. Cornyn Voted for the Wall Street Bailout (T.A.R.P.) A grotesque, unconstitutional theft of your wallet. Unconstitutional: Cornyn Voted to Increase the Federal Minimum Wage. Cornyn Has Voted to Raise the Debt Ceiling Eight Times; rest of short list here. That rotten slug hasn’t focused on the unconstitutional “FED” and the debauched currency we are forced to use, getting us out of the communist UN, eliminating unconstitutional cabinets and agencies bleeding we the people dry and into poverty. Now, doctor, I’m supposed to reward such a snake by reelecting him?..
“The doctor from the Conservative Republicans of Texas wants me to reelect State Senator Kel Seliger. I wrote that idiot when Obamacare became a big issue. His response: Golly, gee, that’s a federal matter, go away. Another ignorant career politician. While an ‘opt out’ regarding ‘smart’ meters is a Band Aid, it was important we get the bill passed in our state legislature last year. One vote was needed – Seliger’s. We didn’t get it. I called Seliger’s office asking he vote for it. Know what I got – as did several in this district? “You people quit calling. Smart meters are not a priority”. I’m supposed to reward another state legislator who cares nothing about the health or privacy of his constituents? I don’t think so.
“And, in fact, that election every single congressional incumbent won reelection here in Texas.”
For all this talk about Trump and rejecting the GOP establishment – what good does it do to elect an ‘outsider’ for president and reelect hundreds and hundreds of establishment puppets back to the U.S. House and 33 to the Senate from both parties?
Paul Ryan, Lamar Smith, do-nothing Joni Ernst, Juan McCain (altho’ he might get ousted, vote fraud could save him again), Steve King (IA). Just go down the list at http://www.house.gov. There they are, oldies and 60+ newbies who sold us out at the first challenge – raising the debt ceiling back in 2011. Then the same dogs screwed us again in December 2014 by passing everything the criminal impostor in the WH wanted; full blown amnesty, ObamaCare and more.
Let me explain it this way. Lone Star Company hires 10 new employees who promise to do a good job. All ten screw things up so badly they’ve practically bankrupted Lone Star Company. What do the owners of Lone Star Company do? They sure as hell don’t keep those 10 failures on the payroll. They fire them and bring in 10 new employees who had better get the job done or they’re fired, too.
When it comes to the U.S. Congress, the American people continue to rehire the same incumbents who have destroyed this country. They re-hire failures every two years; the senate every six years. Now, please explain to me how anyone expects us to survive if it happens again this election cycle? If the Seventeenth Amendment were gone, we might stand a chance.
Some of the states since March 1st including over the weekend have full primaries in the coming months; see 2016 primary schedule here. I pray enough Americans will think about voting for a challenger against your congressional incumbent as well as your state capitol. There are individuals equally or even more qualified than the crook already representing you on the ballot, so why continue voting back the same dirty rat?
Déjà vu in 2016 if the voting trend continues:
• Operation Clean Sweep, January 14, 2005 – Never happened. 96% of the same crooks were reelected
• Blame For Fiscal Mess? Look in the Mirror, January 6, 2013
• Voters, Again, Choose Their Own Destruction, May 11, 2014
The Constitution vs special interests – killing US for decades:
