Conservative on Target! 1/11/13

Harry Reid’s shady filibuster reform
   One look at the ever-growing chorus of radical groups clamoring for Senate filibuster reform should be enough for anyone to understand what’s really motivating the efforts. The AFL-CIOClean Water Action, CREW, Daily Kos, Feminist Majority, GreenpeaceInternational Brotherhood of Teamsters, NAACP, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Action FundNational Organization for Women, Progressive CongressSEIU and United Steelworkers are just a few of the radical special-interest groups demanding that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid break Senate rules to change the filibuster with the so-called “nuclear option.”
   In short, it’s payback time. Mr. Reid is happy to comply.

Jim DeMint: Conservative ideas need a new message   As conservative icon Milton Friedman said: “The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either.” This is the kind of climate-change talk I like. I look forward to the years ahead.




Let’s Force Obama Into a Balanced Budget   Let’s start with a simple question: If conservatives had a choice, would we choose to balance the budget now or follow Obama’s model of catastrophic debt instead? For conservatives, the answer is painfully obvious. And the quickest way to a balanced budget is to let the US government hit the debt ceiling. When we reach the debt limit we can only spend what we take in; quite a novel, radical idea in Washington. Of course, how the revenue gets spent gets complicated, but one thing is certain. Upon hitting the ceiling, the executive branch chooses how revenue is allocated. The US government would only default if the President ordered the Treasury Secretary to not pay our debts. It’s practically impossible. It’s less likely than seeing a fish ride a bicycle. CBO estimates the US government will take in $2.6 trillion this year. It costs approximately $220 billion to service the debt and prevent us from defaulting–just 8.5 percent of revenue. In other words, if we hit the debt ceiling, we still have plenty of money to pay the essential bills.

















Todays Lesson For RINOs:Sound Policy is Sound Politics: 
   As I watched Congressional Republican leaders stumble too often during the fiscal cliff negotiations, I was reminded that a wise mentor often said, "Sound policy is sound politics." This is a lesson Republicans should have learned by now. Instead they’re using flawed logic and telling themselves, “President Obama won the election with a mandate for higher taxes that the public currently supports. A strategic retreat now on tax hikes and cutting government spending will strengthen our political position and keep us relevant in the long run."

Shuns of Anarchy
   There's been a lot of speculation about the smaller crowd expected for this year's inauguration--and now we know why. The President seems to be disinviting all the Christians! The purging started with Pastor Louie Giglio, who had been scheduled to offer the benediction until homosexual activists dug up a 20-year-old sermon and were shocked to find the Christian minister preaching a Christian message on sexuality. Giglio vanished from the inauguration program 24 hours later, despite his successful ministry for human trafficking victims...
   A church without truth is no church at all. It's not enough to love people to Christ if that love is absent the very reason we need Him: human fallenness. There comes a time, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, when silence becomes betrayal. "The day we see the truth and cease to speak is the day we begin to die." Friends, this is that day. Will we hide in fear or stand on truth?
